#ABArare - Little Stint - California
Around 1 PM on July 10, Ken Burton discovered a Little Stint (Code 4) at the Alexandre Dairy, which is a few miles northwest of Fort Dick, CA. Fort Dick is located about five miles north of Crescent City and about 15 miles south of the California-Oregon border in coastal Del Norte County. A Little Stint was found at this same location last year in early July, too.
To get to the Dairy from the south, drive north on US 101 to Lake Earl Drive. This is the last road before the Smith River. Turn left (west) onto Lake Earl Drive, then turn right (north) onto Bailey Drive. At the next intersection, turn left (west) onto Moseley Road and take it until it ends at Lower Lake Road. Turn right (north) and go about one half-mile to the dairy. The stint was at the north end of the big pond on the east side of the road. If you're coming from the north, drive south on US 101, cross the Smith River, and turn right (west) onto Lake Earl Drive. From this point, the rest of the directions are the same as above.
The stint was seen at least as late as 7:30 PM. Two Semipalmated Sandpipers were also seen at the pond.
