2012-08-01 Lindo Lake Solitary Strike-Out

Great Egret at Lindo Lake. Lakeside, California. San Diego County.

I’m always late to chase. I’d heard a Solitary Sandpiper was present at Lindo Lake, and though the reports were merely days old, it was clear to all present the bird had ‘flown the coop’. Guy McCaskie even showed up this Wednesday and made it official … announcing the bird was gone. Yet again this bird eluded my gaze. Regardless, I still was able to enjoy spending time with those birds I found wandering the grounds in the park.

Birds present that morning were Black-Necked Stilt, Killdeer, Spotted Sandpiper, Vermilion Flycatcher, Great-Tailed Grackle, Black Phoebe, Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Least Sandpiper.
