Sorry for the late report, but I thought some might be interested in a
report on "Al," the Laysan Albatross at Point Arena Cove in Mendocino
County. Kimya Lambert and I saw him fly in around 3:30 pm on Friday,
11/27/09. Both legs appeared to be working well (photos from the winter of
06/07 showed an apparent broken leg).

Also of modest note was the continuing American Dipper on 11/28 along Putah
Creek in Solano County where Hwy 128 crosses the creek just below Lake
Berryessa's Monticello Dam.
