1483Re: [Mendobirds] Possible Yellow-billed Loon at Lake Mendocino
- Oct 12, 2005Wed, 12 Oct 2005 -- I spent about two hours at the south marina and Coyote
Dam area this morning. I found one Common Loon among the red and green
buoys at the launching area, but I could not find any other loon. It was
spooky how this loon could disappear for long periods underwater then
reappear in the same place. I caught it repeatedly surfacing for less than
one second for 15 minutes.
I also went to Pomo A and the north marina for a half hour but did
not see any other loon. There was a pair of HORNED GREBES, the first of the
season for me.
