Red-necked Grebe - Juan Creek
- A breeding plumaged Red-necked Grebe was off Juan Creek this
Stops at other creekmouths, like Wages Creek, turned up just a
few migrants. Two Wilson's, and three Orange-crowned Warblers
were at Wages, while a Townsend's, another Orange-crowned and
a Common Yellowthroat were in a marsh on the east side of Hwy1,
just north of where Seaside creek passes under the highway.
Jim walked the beach from Ward Ave to Ten Mile River, but he
was mostly concerned with counting Snowy Plovers. He had 5
snowies, 2 with bands. Some Western Sandpipers, Sanderlings,
Surfbirds, Whimbrels, Black Oystercatcher and Black Turnstones
were seen. Also, he watched an Osprey carrying a fish inland
from Inglenook Creek. This was probably the same Osprey I
saw a couple of weeks ago, where Inglenook Creek meets Hwy 1.
