Baird's Sandiper & Red Phalarope


A Point Isabel walk this morning produced two surprises:

The earliest Baird's Sandpiper I have ever seen, by far.  Seen from the bridge over the drainage just before the housing development (going North).  Might be the Meeker's Slough bridge.

If it's useful:
37 54 37.29, -122 20 13.18   or
37.901033, -122.337167 in decimal degrees

Then a very sad Red Phalarope, clearly on the way out. Seen just before arriving at Vincent Park.

37 53 27.60, -122 20 58.64   or
37.901033, -122.337167   in decimal degrees
