> To add to my hastily written message from the field: the Wandering Tattler continues at Carkeek Park as of about 8:15 AM. It is heavily associating with a large mass of dead roots on the westernmost point of the beach, halfway between the creek outlet and the bridge. It seems to be hiding under that, with only brief forays out to feed. It did make one short flight south toward the outlet of Piper's Creek and landed near the gulls, but quickly returned to its usual spot near the root ball. In the time I have observed it, the tattler has not vocalized at all. It's breast feathers also seem to be yellowish, grungy, and perhaps stuck together by some substance. Maybe oil? It seemed considerable less active than yesterday and I am not sure that it is in good health.
