Ducks in Lake
- Tue, 31 Jan 2006 -- I birded around in Lake County this morning. First off
was owling along Scotts Valley Road. I had NORTHERN PYGMY-OWL at the
pullout 1.1 mile from Hwy 20 and 2 Pygmies, 2 Great Horned, and 1 Western
Screech Owl at the Glen Eden trailhead 2.7 miles in. Pygmies were calling
up to 7:00.
Next stop was the flooded fields near Rodman Slough where there was
a EURASIAN WIGEON among the many American Wigeon. Finally, I worked the
north shore of Clear Lake between Lakeview and Island Drives in ClearLake
Oaks and found two female BARROW'S GOLDENEYES, possibly the same
individual, one sighting at mm 26.86 and the other near Lakeview Drive.
