      Tue, 13 Dec 2011 -- At 1 P.M. today there was a male EURASIAN WIGEON on the
      Christmas Star Vineyard pond in Potter Valley. There has been an increase in
      American Wigeon here in the last week. One very rufous female turned out to
      be an American Wigeon with pure white underwing linings.
      This pond is on West(side) Road about 1/4 mi. N. of the cemetery.
      There is no good place to park nearby; beware of soft shoulders. It's best
      to park at the cemetery and walk the 400 y to the pond. There is a
      step-through in the fence, and if you approach slowly, the waterfowl will
      move away and not fly. Of all the ponds in Potter Valley that can be viewed
      from roads, this pond seems to be the most attractive to waterfowl.
      There was also a female COMMON GOLDENEYE on the McMenomey Vineyard pond
      - best viewed by walking through the cemetery to the south end.
