- Comments: "Found yesterday by Kevin Zimmer around marker 6 on Morro spit. M. Obs. found it today around (35.3515401, -120.8622091). Classic breeding plumage appearance with bright eyebrow and dark lores at gape. Slightly larger than close by SEPL. Photo to follow.
Kayaked from Sub Sea (Dakota helped with advice) in Morro Harbor about 200 yds. to Morro spit. Canoe would be good too. Walked ~300yds. west on vehicle path to beach, then about 1/2 mile south to where CRPL was resting. (35.3515401, -120.8622091). Perhaps an easier route for those disinclined to hike 6-8 miles round trip.

Of course bird could be one mile or one hundred miles further south this time tomorrow."
