      Fri, 8 May 2009 -- Late morning, Toby Tobkin, myself, and Dave Jensen saw an
      undeniably different RED KNOT at Virgin Creek beach, north on the main beach
      but a little south of the first bluff.  Two RUDDY TURNSTONES were nearby.
      One LONG-BILLED CURLEW was a short distance north of the REKN with
      several Whimbrels.
      This REKN was just coming into breeding plumage.  The throat, upper breast and
      the sides had light orange, splotchy coloring, unlike George's description of yesterday's
      very brightly colored knot.
      At Laguna Point, there were two BONAPARTE'S GULLS found by DAJensen.

      Both Virgin Ck and Laguna Point are part of MacKerricher SP, west of Hwy 1 and
      north of Fort Bragg.  Caspian Terns and Red-necked Phalaropes are on the move,
      as well along the coast.
