Cold and windy

I couldn't stand being away from the oasis during spring migration so came back a day early. It was every bit as cold and windy at the oasis as it was in Alpine. Some birders visited and we all froze. Contrary to the forecast for tonight, I expect it will freeze. I don't know if it froze last night; I didn't see any frost damage. But tonight is the second night--- the night they often forecast as warmer, but then it gets colder. So I'll be prepared at 5 AM with the sprinkler.

Very few birds today, but the wind is shifting to the south, so tomorrow might be great birding. I hope so because lots of birders are expected.

This handsome Spotted Sandpiper foraged all day in the big tank.
