" I arise in the morning torn between a desire to inprove the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." -E.B.White

Day 25: Santa Ana:
First, let's get this out of the way - a picture for Steve. Of Steve. And others.
Sue, John, Sue (?), Steve, and Lorna
We saw a few shorebirds this morning, mostly Greater Yellowlegs, Dowitchers, Spotted Sandpipers and Black-necked Stilts. The Lesser Yellowlegs has a straight bill; the Greater a very subtle upswept bill. I'm claiming Greater Yellowlegs, and that's what I'm posting today. The pictures are all Greater Yellowlegs. So if anyone sees Lessers today in these pictures they are simply wrong.
