Editor's note: In last week's Outdoors, Sue Horton wrote about identifying 179 bird species during a one-day outing on May 1. On the same day, Todd and David Easterla, Steve Glover, Gjon Hazard and John Sterling set a Big Day record in San Diego County with 217. Here's an excerpt from their online report. We left the Silver Strand with 212 species, and added only Clapper Rail at Mission Bay (no brant, harlequin duck or little blue herons -- it was high tide). With 213, we had our last daylight at La Jolla where black-vented shearwaters and northern phalaropes flew offshore.

Routinely hitting 300-yard drives is just one of Tiger Woods' talents. In a two-part interview to be shown on the Golf Channel's "Golf Central" program the next two Wednesday nights, Woods discusses others. Among them is an ability to hold his breath under water for four minutes. That's nice, but it still probably wouldn't help him much if he ever decided to play a shot out of a water hazard.

The article says "Pedestrians in . . . crosswalks are twice as likely to be hit as those in unmarked locations. . . ." Of course more people are hit in crosswalks; this is because that is where they cross streets. I have found that jaywalking is absolutely the safest way to cross. In that situation the walker is in complete control. The walker can wait until there is a sure opportunity to get to the other side. In a crosswalk, even one with an electric signal, the walker is at the mercy of whatever the motorist chooses to do. Instead of eliminating crosswalks, the police should be giving tickets to motorists who violate pedestrian rights.
