- Cliff Johnson called this evening with a report of a nighthawk.
He saw the bird about 10:00 AM this morning in flight near the intersection of Finley East Rd. and California Packing Road which is northwest of Kelseyville and south of Lakeside County Park.
He reported it as a Common Nighthawk, but he did not hear it vocalize. Based on the date I believe it is more likely to be a Lesser Nighthawk.
He last saw the bird flying in the direction of Lakeside County Park. Jerry

There is a Tundra Swan (Imm.) feeding just West of the Rodman Slough Island. The bird didn't seem to mind that I was only about 50 yards from it. Also, just east (20 yards)of the Rodman Slough Bridge there is a Phainopepla. This is the exact place I saw two of them earlier in the year on the North side of the road.
