refind it, but we finally saw it again around 5:20p. The bird was there for
the next 15-20 minutes and the entire flock took off to the west at about

This location was the NE corner of Pond C in the dry pond area. There were
15-20 American Pipits there in the same area.

Checklist with some photos of the bird:
