Subject: [NBB] Abbott's Lagoon: Baird's Sandpipers & Clay Colored Sparrow
My apologies for this tardy report.

Last weekend I led a pair of Abbott's Lagoon trips for GGAS and Marin
Audubon respectively. Baird's Sandpiper was the target species. Saturday
the lagoon was swept clear of shorebirds by a very active pair of
Peregrines. We did see a Clay Colored Sparrow at the first little marsh
on the left not far from the trail head (ID'd after the fact with photos
taken by a participant).

Sunday there were two Baird's Sandpiper on the north edge of the lagoon.
