    Well, I now have four white-crowned sparrows in the yard. Yeah for them making it down. I don't know about site fidelity, but since I totally spoil my birds, I'm thinking (hoping) they are the ones i spoiled all last late winter/spring.

    On Saturday, I finally got a Blue-footed Booby, and yesterday a Pectoral Sandpiper. I needed both for my life list.

    Fun times! Keep on birding!

      this week.  But we did see a Pectoral yesterday.  We were in the Marin Headlands, driving to our banding blind and saw some birders by the edge of Rodeo Lagoon.  On a whim, we asked them if there was anything good and one said that they were watching a pectoral sandpiper.  My blindmate said it would be a lifer for her so we swung around to a safe parking place and dashed over to see it.  All the other banding teams passed us as they were driving up to their blinds and wondered what the hell was going on... we're always the first to head out since we're so eager to trap.
