Hi, all!

Surveyed Laguna Seca Road this morning, and then ran over to Sugarhouse Pond
to see if I could spot the Red-necked Phalarope, joined by Joyce Davidson. I
wouldn't be surprised if it was still there, but there were just so many
phalaropes WAAAAY out there that I just couldn't see them well. There were
oodles of other nice shorebirds there, though, and thankfully the turnstones
came wheeling in fairly close! A few pics can be seen on my Facebook page:
