I ran over to the pond as soon as I received Houston's email, but no luck
-- no solitary sandpiper, just the usual resident population of killdeer
and one least sandpiper. I'll stop by again after work today.
I'm pretty sure Houston and I saw different sandpipers -- the least was
conveniently standing next to a killdeer, and it was WAY smaller.
