Found about 5:25 pm by Andrew Johnson aided by Linda Gal, payoff for a two-hour search just before I arrived - my luck! It was in the same location as earlier today - SW corner of the first "summer shorebird" field from the main road (across from Parking Lot C). All by itself in the short-grass and "dry" furrows about 75 yards into the field from the west-side berm. Quite difficult to see, much less find. But a beautiful, unmistakable bird through the scope. After we studied the bird for about 20 minutes, it flew east into the next field or beyond. We could not re-find the bird.
