This morning a BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPER  was located in the Black Dirt Region by Jim Schlickenrieder (who I just met for the first time today). Not only that, the bird was moving around the Black Dirt pretty good, and Jim was able to relocate the bird two more times! To me this is pretty incredible, and thanks to his diligence and John Haas alerting me, I was able to see this amazing bird. Shortly after parting ways, Jim contacted John again to say he had located an American Golden-Plover. Wow, pretty good morning of birding for Jim!

    1. Thanks, John, that’s nice to hear – I’m starting to like it a little better. I had a distant but nice look at this bird and two more Buff-breasted Sandpipers this afternoon, what a nice bird. Matt
