I have been out here since this AM and have not seen any sign of the 
Black-necked Stilts (BNST). That does not mean they are not around since my 
focus was more on counting shorebirds instead of searching for the BNSTs.

On a side note, the Cattle Egret continued this AM at Cow Meadow Park.


Cheers,
