      Thu, 18 Nov 2004 -- New for the season today at Lake Mendocino were 3
      COMMON GOLDENEYES, and 1 HERRING GULL. There were also still two
      BONAPARTE'S GULLS sitting among the California Gulls near the south marina.
      Most spectacular was an adult BALD EAGLE near Coyote Dam which made about
      thirty close passes at a flock of coots which escaped by diving under
      water. Eventually it gave up and went and sat on the east shore. There is a
      raft of about 800 scaup building up in the north end of the lake - more
      than twice as many as last year at this time. Greater Scaup predominate
      over Lesser about 16 to 1. Near the north marina there is still a group of
      15 DOWITCHERS sp. hanging around. Finally, in the inlet there was a
      beautiful pair of HOODED MERGANSERS.
