Saturday Jan. 19
- Saturday Jan. 19, I birded Hwy 20 from Blue Lakes to Clearlake Oaks -
car & kayak.
Birds of interest (to me, anyway):
Numerous Canvasbacks in roadside pond east of Blue Lakes
Same location: Great Egret with a wriggling mouse in its beak which
it proceeded to eat
Lucerne Park with docks: Western Bluebird flock eating mistletoe
berries - Cottonwood mistletoe (Phoradendron macrophyllum)
Random stop along lake: Ruby-crowned Kinglet with its ruby crown
turned permanently ON
Clearlake Oaks area well populated with Common Goldeneye
Few gulls or Western Grebes currently at Clearlake Oaks
Left my Sibley somewhere along the lake, Drat!
