Resting on the rocks

Yesterday (6 November 2017), a few people reported a Rock Sandpiper (Calidris ptilocnemis) at the southern end of Bodega Head.  It has been observed on the rocks below the outer State Parks parking lot.  

I haven't seen it yet, but here's a photo of a Rock Sandpiper from several years ago (on Bodega Head in February 2013). 


Rock Sandpipers are rare in the Bodega Bay area.  I hope the one that was spotted yesterday stays around for a little while!
