- Today around the lunch hour the Black-necked Stilt, the Marbled Godwits
and 3 Pectoral Sandpipers were at "Robinson Lake". This is an abandoned
rice check that the owner is keeping partially flooded for the
sandpipers and plovers etc. This is private property however viewing is
possible from alongside the road in front of the gate near the
implement sheds. This location is not far Northeast of the Rodman
Slough Bridge on Nice-Lucerne Cutoff road. Two times while at this
location I have been approached by the property owners, who were OK
once they found out I was birding.
Please do not trespass. Jerry White
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.
