The American Golden-Plover showed up at 12:15pm today, in the vicinity of the white plastic bag in the marsh to the left of the railroad tracks as seen from the EEC entrance road. However, it flew away five minutes later when two Peregrine Falcons tussled over the marsh. As far as I know, nobody saw it at any other time today.
After that, I went to the Shoreline kite-flying area to look the Chestnut-collared Longspur. It wasn't there when I arrived, but Steve Rottenborn was. About an hour later, Steve recognized its call when a flock of pipits flew by. We followed the flock, and eventually all the birders who had gathered there saw it. My photos of it are here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/garrettlau/albums/72157675508722608
