Chris Charlesworth, Murray Brown et al are currently looking at the LUWA. It was hiding along Brandt's creek just in the other side of Manhattan Drive. It then flew back into its usual spot where it was seen yesterday (see previous page). The LEFL and Green Heron (mentioned in its own thread) continue as well.

Cheers,
Mel

Mike Force and Mike Bentley just had the bird at the same location on Manhattan Drive. Also the LEFL continues at Sunset Drive Park.

Dan Peterson just relocated the LUWA. He had a very brief look at the bird in Sunset Drive Park.

Cheers,

Several birders along with Chris Charlesworth have been looking for the LUWA since Dan's sighting this morning with unfortunately no luck.

Mike Force, Don Cecile and many other birders have been searching valiantly for the LUWA with no luck. The LEFL and Green Heron were also not seen.
