We had so much fun birding in and around Santa Cruz that we never made it south of Moss Landing. Along the way we found our very first Northern Waterthrush. Even more exciting, Mary finally saw a Long-tailed Duck, ending a discrepancy between our life lists that stretched back to October, 2002, when Bill saw one briefly during a pelagic trip. On that occasion Mary had taken two Dramamines instead of one (bad, bad advice) and slept through the whole thing. This look was much better.
