      Belated 22-25 November 2007 - Irish Beach to Point Arena highlights.

      Black Scoter - female - directly below Irish Beach housing -
      sometimes with Surf Scoters
      White-winged Scoter - 4 on Hunter's Lagoon, 1 at Pt. Arena
      Cove near the pier, several along the coastline
      Ferruginous Hawks - 3 to 4 - various places along Hwy 1 -
      one very cooperative bird (for photos) was seen several times on the
      power poles just north of Manchester ....about three poles north of
      Brush Creek.
      Peregrine Falcon - atop the pyramid-shaped rock island that
      is in the NW view from the CalTrans overlook by Mallo Pass Creek
      ...just north of Irish Beach
      Black-crowned Night Heron - 20 - 25 birds along Garcia River
      just west of the end of the Miner Hole Road

      Of note: I did not see any swans on the Garcia River flats
      ...and "Al" the Laysan Albatross had NOT shown up yet at the Pt.
      Arena Cove... and I did not see any Eurasian Collared-Doves along
      Duxbury Ln. (many times near the Thompson residence).

      Good birding...Bob Keiffer.
