Comments:
KCT Spring Bird Walk (3-14) with JB; quick scan of the ocean, then Jenny spotted the BLGR beside us in the dunes, so we spent some time observing her (I took photos and recorded some audio); then we birded a section of beach for PIPLs (saw 2), then drove to the south end of Kings Highway to check for LETEs (none) and PIPLs (at least 2 more) with surprise RECRs near the car on the way back, then briefly birded Dyke Rd. from the car; overcast, 53-51˚, SE wind ~5 mph
