Monica Essenmacher re-found the RUFF this morning at shortly after 8:00AM and texted me. I got out there at 9:30 and finally re-found it right around 10:00AM. I left it at 11:15AM and it was still there at that time. Documentation will be provided to state eBird Monitor. Click HERE for one minute video of the Ruff's movements while feeding.
