Hi all -
Finally got over to see the Seattle Sharp-tailed Sandpiper this morning — Still present, and pretty peaceful on the 520 path w/o car traffic.

it was present from when we arrived at a little after 8:00 onwards - it took us over 30 min to actually notice it despite lots of scanning - a sleeping Sharp-tailed w/ its head tucked is more subtle on mud than we imagined. After it work up, it was much easier to watch and enjoy.
