> I can drive and bird from my car, it is that I cannot walk more than a shaky step or two while learning to walk again. I looked for shorebirds and a grackle at Baskett Slough this morning. Of shorebirds there were 15-20 LB Dowitchers, a few Greater Yellowlegs, and maybe a Lesser I did not really look getting sidetracked by 4 juvenile WILSON'S PHALAROPES. No such thing as any grackle, except for Brewer's Blackbirds er 'Lesser Grackles', thanks Bill Thackaberry via Jeff Harding.
