Dang! I wish I'd had this e-mail in hand today. I went without my laptop
computer on the Sea & Sage Audubon trip (led by the Leipzigs) to Salton
Sea Saturday and today. After the group disbanded, my carpool mates and I
(I was the driver) went over to Ave 68 and Lincoln, to St. Anthony's Fish
Farm. Nothing. We headed down to the end of Lincoln (south?) and
realized it was Torrez Martinez tribal land and turned back; we did NOT
want to trespass or otherwise cause any problems. If I'd had that
information/number...why...we coulda gotten the Black Headed Gull! LOL
We then went back onto Hwy 111 down to Johnson (Johnston?) and went to
the VERY end, where water covers the dirt road. Holy smokes, were there a
LOT of gulls but no Black Headed Gull. We watched one possible Glaucous
Winged hybrid (x who knows what). End of that road, there's barely enough
room to turn around but my Escape managed handily. We were there from
3:30 to 4:30 today.
Great trip, but I'm bringing my laptop next time. :-)
