Baird's Sandpiper - Willow Creek, Cayucos

Kaaren Perry

A Baird's Sandpiper was seen this morning at 11:30 at Wlllow Creek in Cayucos, viewed from Studio Rd.   It was seen moving along the distant edge of the creek mouth, sometimes in the water and usually at the shore edge.  It was moving with a few Western and Least Sandpipers. A scope would be helpful but not entirely necessary.
A Baird's Sandpiper was last reported at this location on August 30.

Whale Rock Reservoir -  Northern Shovelers were added to my seasonal Whale Rock Res. ebird list this morning.  A Wilson's Phalarope was also present.
