Thanks for the update and clarification Don. Just trying to disseminate reports that never make it onto MBB these days.

It is too deep downstream of Carmel River Inn for ordinary calf-length boots and, in any event, access at Carmel River Inn is entirely closed right now due to construction. Some of the birds reported on eBird have been upstream of Hwy 1, by those using calf-length waders, but it has not been "birdy" and numbers of migrants are few. So it is not at all like it was last year when access was easier and the flocks of migrants much larger. Perhaps it will get better over the next few weeks but, in general, birding has been "slow" at this location.
