Hi Blair - To answer your questions, the Refuge should now be staffed and open during regular daylight hours. My wife (a USDA employee) had to go to work at the regular time today, after a broken schedule Monday & Tuesday...

As far as the birds, the Least Sandpipers are most regularly seen out on the estuary boardwalk, which leads out toward the Observation deck at the mouth of McAllister Creek. Note that the last 400 feet of the boardwalk is still gated-off until the end of waterfowl hunting season on the 28th inst.

The Spotted Sandpipers are also seen along this stretch of boardwalk, but are harder to spot. The weekly Wednesday bird walk folks usually have to do some serious scoping to find them on the west bank of McAllister Creek; they are rarely seen on the east (boardwalk) side.

Hope this helps,
