The Kont in Southern California
The Knot in Southern California
The Knot (Tringa canutus), always a rarity on our coast, is almost unknown here in spring. The most recent record, and the second, I believe, in ten years or more, is the capture of two on April 24 in a tide-marsh near Sunset Beach, Orange County, by a collector from this Museum. The birds were in a flock of five or six, feeding on a mud bank at low tide.
