Yesterday there were 21 canvasbacks at Lake Pennyroyal, only 6 or so of them females.
Also three wood ducks, a few ring-necks, some ruddies, and some mallards.

Turn left on North Lenore Avenue and follow it down to Sewer Plant Road and then turn right,following it to the plant. Be sure to check in at the office if you go. The ponds are through the plant across a flatcar bridge (a bit muddy) to the north-east a bit.

Currently writing Secrets of the Oak Woodlands,
a book of fascinating information about the plants
and animals that live among California's oaks. My goal is
is to motivate Californians to preserve our native oaks
and the myriad species that live in association with them.
Oak habitats collectively support more diversity of life
than any other terrestrial ecosystems in California. To be
published by Heyday in spring of 2014.
