      Thursday - 1 September 2005 - On two separate occasions a Least Bittern was
      observed at Tule Point, from a boat, on Clear Lake. It is uncertain
      whether this was one bird or two. Look at the top center portion of
      the photo to see one bird. One flyby Willet flew by a couple of times
      while we were there. Clark's and Western Grebes are still in breeding
      mode ranging from courtship dances, to nests with eggs, to newborn young on
      parent's backs, to almost full-sized juveniles. Good birding. Bob Keiffer

      strong person stumbles... or where the doer of deeds could have done
      better. The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena."
