Apparently due to the ponding on the golf course from all the rain, 
electric carts were not allowed on the course and this discouraged a lot 
of golfers from coming. There were some walking the course when I left 
at 7:30 but many fewer than expected.

That said, the bird flew off and did not return as of 9:00 (last news I 
have). I would not give up on it though, and any news positive or 
negative would be appreciated as there are folks coming from 5+ hours 
away to try for it.

If you do try for it, please, please, park in the parking lot by the 
clubhouse or at the marsh and not along the roadway, and please, please 
do not walk onto the course. Viewing has been good from the roadway and 
upper lot, and we want to maintain a good rapport with the golfers and 
the cops.

On the marsh at the end of the road there are a variety of shorebirds, 
Glossy Ibis, and a few singing Seaside Sparrows among the usual
