I missed the American Golden Plover this morning by about five minutes and figured that was the last of another 3-day wonder. Then a few hours later I noticed Philip Kline's report of the bird on the rocks near the Sea Scout base and thought maybe I still had a chance.
The rain was a bit discouraging but as the worst of the front passed through the remaining clouds provided excellent light and the plover was very cooperative. As it turns out this is a very colorful bird if encountered under the right conditions.
