I love last minute, unexpected, spur-of-moment, road trips. However when Buff-breasted Sandpipers are within a 2 hour drive from home you have to make the decision on whether to go or not. WE GO! For the past several days they’ve been seeing multiple “Buffies” at Hoover Reservoir Northeast of Columbus, and neither Jon or myself have this particular bird on our life list. We’re hoping to remedy this problem tomorrow after the delivery people bring my new washing machine, which already screws up an early departure.
Wish us luck.
