      Fri, 10 Dec 2004 -- Today Dorothy Tobkin found a TROPICAL KINGBIRD in the
      Garcia lowlands just south of the green bridge over the Garcia River. It
      was on the west side of the road on the wire and in the bushes.

      Toby saw some distant TUNDRA SWANS at Brush Creek but did not see
      any on the Garcia flats yet.

      Yesterday there were tremendous 20 foot waves at Fort Bragg. She
      found a ROCK SANDPIPER at Glass Beach among the Surfbirds and Black
      Turnstones that were taking refuge high on the beach. At Virgin Creek there
      were three ROCK SANDPIPERS out of habitat high on the sandy beach among the
      Black-bellied Plovers, and at Ward Avenue in Cleone there were eleven
      HARLEQUIN DUCKS out among the BLACK SCOTERS. These were probably the birds
      usually found on the rocks at Glass Beach taking refuge from the unusually
      high surf.
