2017 National link

Drove all the way to Pt. Dume to do some seabird watching and couldn't see a thing, due to heavy fog..surprise find there was a male California Quail.
Least Terns and Snowy Plover were good finds at Malibu Lagoon.

Baptiste not entered, yet. Let's hope it stays that way.

Some top players already entered, Osuigwe, Liu, Douglas, Bolton..

And Desiatnikov.
Did she move yet again(from Sandy Springs, Georgia: TRN)?

Feeding Hills, MA

Anyway she's currently playing senior ITF events, hasn't played junior events in a while, methinks.

Kessler this time teamed up with Zein, interesting(not Emma).

Winter Nat G18 winner Kung is playing.

Paul Lehman is posting at San Diego birding listserve(Yahoo).  Another strong reason to revisit SD.
