Nearly my whole life I had dreamed of seeing a Spoon-billed Sandpiper.
After repeated trips to Attu Island, Alaska in spring, many, many trips to Aleutians Islands and Bering Sea Islands,
hoping to see one, and nearing the later years of my life, I decided to finally make the quest for the species in a
more 'expected' place.  That place was near Bangkok, Thailand, in the Petchaburi provincial area.  There were a
couple of 'good' spots for the species, but after doing a lot of research and talking to others, determined that
Khok Kham, near the Gulf of Thailand, would be the first and best choice.

That turned out to be the right move as within 15 minutes (think it was actually only about 10) we found the sandpiper
roosting amongst many Rufous-necked Stints, Curlew Sandpipers, Great Knots, Broad-billed Sandpipers, and Lesser
and Greater Sand Plovers.  What a fantastic experience, and with quite reasonable weather to go along with it since it
had just rained, a nice breeze, and reduced normal temperatures to top off a GREAT bird!
