    Comments: flushed from grass of northern playa

  6. Number observed: 1

    Comments: Fascinating to watch it walking through bright green vegetation of northern playa. Veg was a little taller than the curlew, and mostly blooming vine mesquite. Where they were young, vertical plants, the curlew could push through them with ease. But when it ran into bigger plants with long stolons trailing out, it would get caught up in the stolons and sometimes end up so stuck it would have to back out and find another route.
