Common Grackle and Emperor Goose
- Hi Folks,
This morning at 8:00 I observed the Guerneville COMMON GRACKLE on the wires over Church Street, about 30-50 m north of Main Street.
At 10:00 a.m. I located the EMPEROR GOOSE at the far SE corner of Bodega Harbor. I viewed it by looking northeast while standing along Doran Beach Road about 1/4 mile west of the entrance kiosk. The bird was feeding in the shallows with Brant during high tide.
