I was "fortunate" that there weren't as many birds at Bottle Beach
Sunday as yesterday. Made first finding the bird much easier. I saw
the bird in essentially the same area as Blair and Co. but Sunday the
peeps were sticking to to the area north (east?) of the viewing blind,
at least while I was there. That would be to the right of the blind
while looking out at the beach.
