I birding friend of mine in the Eureka area, Sandy Popko, had a bang-up time in late September as unusual shorebirds just couldn’t stay away.  Here’s her email:

“We have been back to Centerville Beach 3 out of the last 4 days and truly have had such an extraordinary birding experience.  First day, was the Wood Sandpiper, next day the Sharp-tailed sandpiper (could take it’s photo next to the Pectoral so clearly saw the difference) and then the 3rd day saw the Pacific Golden Plover!  Should run out and buy us a lotto ticket.”

Here are Sandy’s pics; in both the Sharpie is back to the camera.  Pectoral in back on the right:
