      Thu, 10 Oct 2002 -- This afternoon at 4:30 there were two AMERICAN WHITE
      PELICANS sitting on the mud west of the mesa. Yes, there are now several
      acres of mud _west_ of the mesa including two mud islands in the middle of
      the lake which I have never seen before, having been out of the country
      during the drought in the 70's. The pelicans were gone when I looked again
      at 6:00. Do they commute to Lake County? There was also a group of 5-6
      BONAPARTE'S GULLS milling around the end of Miti spit.
      This morning there was quite a fallout of Yellow-rumped Warblers in
      Potter Valley. There were hundreds everywhere where there were none
      yesterday. There was a heavy, high overcast for the first time in weeks.
      The warblers were most concentrated in some vineyards which have not been
      picked this year, but they could be found in any tree inspected.

      P.S. The new Lake and Mendocino phonebook which came this week has a
      picture of a group of White Pelicans on the cover. It must be Clear Lake;
      does anyone recognize the place? I think the picture on the old phonebook
      is Cypress Point in Monterey Co.!
