Subject: Shorebird: overflights?

Would the pattern of more rare shorebirds in California have anything to
do with the latitude that the birds normally fly to?

In other words, are the birds wintering in the right place (latitude), but
wrong side of the Pacific?

If the birds are wintering in California, but only migrating through
B.C., Washington, and Oregon, then that would explain the higher numbers
discovered in California.
