FYI, the Sweaty Sanderlings is a communal blog with some other youngish birders and records our birding while running exploits. We happened to be running at Golden Ponds on January 18th when Larry Semo and Steve Mlodinow found the bird. So you're not confused, for this blog we all use nick names . . . Marcel is Masai and Joel is Welch.
