- Comments: "(Rare): “infrequent”: cont. birds, poor digiscope photo. Jimmy
asked after we left, did 1 look like a Tundra swan? Caleb and Courtney
confess we were lazy and didn’t confirm all 3 : we only looked at 2 of them
seen well to be Trumpeter, and because others have been logging 3, we did
too. — We spent almost all of our time here down on the driveway where
Prius got stuck in wet soggy grass between gravel drive and marsh, waiting
70-min. for tow truck ... We hadn’t known how to access the pin point
others had logged, so we drove down that driveway — mistake, can’t see the
swans anyway, and got stuck ... : rather see them from Hwy overlook just
east of driveway."

- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S61372823
- Comments: "(Rare): “unreported”: “we confess we can’t rule out
Gray-tailed, which is possible at this date”: our view was after sunset so
almost no light left : rock piper on sand edge of rocks where all other
rockpipers working collected on Jetty rocks at beach ocean edge , this one
was larger (perfect size for Tattler) with long bill , longer bill than
other rock pipers : bird grayish above, whiter below : NOT a yellowlegs.
Perfect size and silhouette gizz for Tattler, we both agree . “Considering
the rarity of Gray tailed Tattler, it’s prob more scientifically useful to
report it as a Wandering.” & we will try to look again tomorrow, since
Courtney still needs Rock SA for 2019 anyway :-)"
