Subject: [Mendobirds] Ten Mile to Westport: Long-Tailed Duck and Aleutian
Friday, February 3, 2006. The adult male Long-tailed Duck was seen from the
Ten-Mile bridge again today, as were the pair of Common Goldeneyes. The male
can be hard to spot (it tends to drift downstream near the mouth of the
river). The female LTDU was not seen.
At the northern edge of Westport on the western banks of the sewage
treatment ponds near the road, there were 12 Aleutian Geese. One on the
birds wore a blue neck band with (at least) the white markings "52A". There
may have been additional characters, but the bird was on one leg and didn't
move to show the rest of the band.
