> The Wood Sandpiper continues at Marsh Meadows, North Road, in Jamestown, RI.
> As of 3 PM, it is still in the small pool/panne at the end of the path on
> the northeast section of the marsh. Park at the water treatment plant and
> cross the road. The path takes you to the farthest NE corner of the marsh.
> At high tide, the path is wet and knee-high boots (wellies) are recommended.
> At low tide, you might need at least ankle-high boots if you want to stay
> dry. A birder reports that his sneakers got soaked one hour before low
> Please do not walk into the marsh to the other side of the pool/panne.
> Birders mention that it's not necessary to walk right up to the edge of the
> pool where the bird is foraging. A birder/photographer did that this
> morning and the bird was clearly distressed and then hid in the grass.
> Please respect the bird and the environment.
