    Hi all,
    
    At milepost 7.69 on Mines Rd. today I  had a Rufous
    Hummingbird. This erases one of 5 nemesis birds from
    my list and the poster in the kitchen and the
    dartboard in the garage.  Warbler action this
    afternoon was limited to one Wilson's Warbler.
    Milepost 13.97.
    
    Wednesday morning I biked around Arrowhead Marsh.  3
    Short-billed Dowitchers were foraging at the mouth of
    the channel that flows into the bay, perpendicular to
    Hegenberger and along the east edge of the marsh. A
    decent photo of 1 of the SB Dowitchers is available
    for review and comment at:

    Also seen in the channel was one finely spotted
    Spotted Sandpiper.
    
    Good birding,
