Late in the afternoon on Fri., Sep. 2, 2017, I birded the beach at La Conchita with Mario Borunda and Andrea Bruce, looking for the Baird's Sandpiper John Bailey had found (and photographed) on Thursday. No luck on the Baird's but we did see a HUGE flock of shorebirds covering a quarter mile stretch of the beach. Included were hundreds of WHIMBRELS and LB CURLEWS, a good number of MARBLED GODWITS and imm. HEERMANN'S GULLS. No peeps of any kind.
