Roy Gerig and and company found an AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER on Pintail Marsh and were kind enough to point it out. I was able to see 4 primaries visible past the tertials and the primary/wing tip projection was long.
Also present was a SOLITARY SANDPIPER plus other common shorebirds. There were 3 RED-NECKED PHALAROPES on a small pond just north of Pintail Marsh.
