Do you mean Friday the 19th, or today, Saturday the 20th?

>From Dan Rottino:10/19/12 - Jamestown, RI - - 1 WOOD SANDPIPER.  Arrived at 
6:30am.  Parked on the road at the Water Treatment Plant.  Walked across the 
road to the east side of the marsh.  Just off the road is a very wet marsh trail 
through the grass.  Followed the edge of the marsh on the north side through 
very wet areas all the way to the opposite side where the bird was easily found 
in a large tidal pool by itself.  It was viewed until 8:00am when I left.  Bring 
your boots.  I was told by another CT birder that it is there in the mornings, 
but on the opposite side of the road near the treatment plant in the 
afternoons.  Well worth it.
