Last evening, an adult Curlew Sandpiper in nearly complete breeding
was found at the Goleta Sewage Plant on William Moffet Place (between
airport and Goleta Beach). The plant can be reached by staying on
Avenue going south, passing the airport and looking for the gate opening
the left between two large white pillars. Note that the south-bound
Fairview off-ramp is closed due to freeway construction, so you'll have
get off at Los Carneros, turn right and go to Hollister, left on
then right from Hollister onto Fairview.
The bird was still present this morning, but seems to be very skittish.
sewage plant folks have said it is okay to broadcast this bird (which we
doing on Calbird, BirdWest, etc.), but ask for your cooperation in the
PLEASE SIGN IN AT THE OFFICE BEFORE HEADING OUT TO THE PONDS.
If you should see the bird, please call me (964-1316) and/or Joan Lentz
(969-4397) with an update.
