I stopped by the field on the way to bird Oso Flaco.The crane was there about 09:30 or 10.It's a lot easier to see with no weeds.

Subject: [sbcobirding] Black Road flooded field
I made a trip up to Santa Maria to look for the Tropical Kingbird that I heard a couple days ago on Furukawa Way, I did not see any kingbirds.
It is still a little muddy on the west side of Black Road for parking, but you still can park there safely.
Today I missed the Crane again, but invested little effort. They have cut the tall weeds/grass in the back fields where I have seen it on 2 visits. This flooded field has a great turnover of birds. Today 16 Sanderlings, down to 2 Snow Geese, 4 Bufflehead in the mix of ducks. A good number of gulls were hanging out. I saw 2 Glaucous-winged Gulls a Gull that looked very much like a Thayer’s along with all the previous mentioned birds.
