A Plumbeous Vireo was present just south and downhill of the ranger station today around noon, where the pines meet the sycamores. It called several times and occasionally gave a few notes from its song. I did not refind it later in the afternoon.
The freak bird I saw today however was an apparent Long-billed Dowitcher on the lawn by the pond at about the same time. It was quite skittish, and flew off to the east about five minutes after I first saw it, calling. It's probably safely at the river by now.
