- On 11 November I saw a male EURASIAN WIGEON at Borax
Lake and a CACKLING GOOSE with a flock of CANADA GEESE
at Redbud Park in Clearlake. Presumably these were the
same individuals I saw at Borax Lake on 22 October,
but I missed both on 5 November.
At the Hidden Valley Lake Wastewater Treatment Plant,
there were a pair of HOODED MERGANSERS and three
CINNAMON TEAL on 12 November and six CINNAMON TEAL on
At Detert Reservoir, a HORNED GREBE, about 10 HOODED
MERGANSERS, an adult BALD EAGLE and a PEREGRINE FALCON
were present on 12 November.
Hidden Valley Lake, Lake County
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.
