> Birders,
> 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 
> tide.
> 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.
