Last update for today — the Northern Wheatear was still along the Transco Trail between the two large orange hoses as of 3:30 p.m. He was actually on the trail…
Including this shot of the Golden Plover as well..
Chris Takacs and Bill Elrick report a Golden Plover and two Soras in the Shorebird Pool (Kingsland Impoundment). Plover pic later… (Thanks, guys!)
The Wheatear was seen again Wednesday from 6:55 a.m. through 8:45 a.m. along the Transco Trail. Several good looks at this immature bird — and nice views of that flash of white in the trail when it flew. Very cooperative.
We will look for it again at 8 a.m. today. If you are coming to see it, please park in the far parking lot near the administration building or observatory. There is a conference at DeKorte today and parking is limited.
You can call Jim Wright until 11:30 a.m. today if you have questions — 201-785-6604.
Ray Duffy will post a video later today, and we will link to that …
