Thursday, November 1, 2007.
While working in the Manchester area today I saw the following:
(many Kestrel, Red-tails and Northern Harriers, as expected)
2 Osprey (together)
1 immature Bald Eagle
no Ferruginous Hawks
7 White-winged Scoter, mostly immatures, on Hunter's Lagoon
Two brief impressions:
* I have seen more White-winged Scoter this year along the entire coast than I can remember in recent years.
* My job has required me to drive to Gualala about twice a week since July. The number of White-tailed Kite seen from Elk to Anchor Bay has increased dramatically in the past two weeks.
