Myers was pretty quiet this morning, as it has been for the last few mornings. Highlight today was a WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER that came flying in off the lake. I first noticed it because it was giving its high-pitched, squeaky calls. It circled the spit once but didn't land, then headed back out

Hi Brad, How many egrets did you find there? I thought it was you but you did not recognize me so I thought it might have been someone else who was reading a book or something like that. Plus I was in a different car too. May be you were reading an Edgar Allen Poe when I passed you :) Meena
