      Migrants were sparse at Huntington Central Park today. The biggest
      surprise was a California Gnatcatcher in the eucalyptus trees between
      the dog park and the lake on the Edwards Street side. Possibly one of
      the brood from the Bolsa Chica pair this past breeding season? An
      adult Pacific Golden-Plover at the south end of Bolsa (visible from
      Harriet Wieder Park) has apparently returned for another winter. Also,
      at least one juvenile Pectoral Sandpiper continues in the L-shaped
      pond at San Joaquin marsh. The sum total of shorebird habitat at the
      marsh today consisted of the higher, outer edge of this pond. (Okay,
      there was a group of Black-necked Stilts standing in water in the
      middle of another pond.) In years past, there would always be
      shorebird habitat in at least one of the small ponds and one of the
      large ponds during the fall. Such a waste! I wonder if SJM will
      ever return to past glory.
