I was out birding today trying to catch as many fall migrants as possible. I was lucky enough to see both the Juvenile Ruff (Lifer!) and the Stilt Sandpipers in the West Pond at Reifel. Continuing my lucky streak, I just happened to check my email while at Iona and catch a bird alert about a Wandering Tattler (Lifer!) on the south jetty. With the help of some other birders, the bird was located near the end of the jetty (#242).
