I stopped by Moore WMA on the way back and found this Silvery Checkerspot.
I also stopped by Reid CA to look for more hairstreaks. Seems it is not a great year for them, as I was hard-pressed to find just a few Banded.
It should be peak time for the Southern Hairstreak, but this is the second day I have struck out!
Here is a link to my initial find of the Northern Oak Hairstreak:
Here are some photos of other butterflies encountered.

A male Blue-winged Teal was also present.
Some shorebirds are starting to appear as "fall" migrants. A single Least Sandpiper was working the mud.
