Ruff continues @ AG Creek Mouth 8/31

The female juvenile Ruff continues at the mouth of Arroyo Grande Creek .  It's in the same area where it was first seen 26 Aug by Curtis Marantz and Brian Daniels. Viewing is best from the beach looking back into the lagoon in the vicinity of the largest stand of reeds.  The Solitary Sandpiper was NOT seen today.  The habitat is good for shorebirds.

Stopped by Oceano County Pond.  The adult Snow Goose and the Cackling Goose are still there with the ragtag domestic geese.

Oceano Campground was busy with the resident Chestnut-backed Chickadees.   Had a calling Ruby-crowned Kinglet in the pines west of the campground and a male Black-throated Gray Warbler in the willows along the Norswing, Coolidge side of the lagoon.
