Sparrow habitat along West End Road
In the afternoon I birded the Arcata Marsh. There were hundreds of Marbled godwits, Willets, Western sandpipers, and Black-bellied plovers. I scanned through the Black-bellies looking for golden-plovers, but as far as I could discern, there weren't any present. It was a nice afternoon out nonetheless.
I am going to keep this short since I want to spend time with Sonia. Tomorrow I am going to take another crack at the sapsucker outside of Arcata. I will likely move down the road to Fortuna tomorrow night, but we'll see what happens as the day unfolds.
