      Sunday, August 17, 2008. Clear Lake is now at 2.75 ft. on the Rumsey
      scale, low enough to expose mud at the outlet of Kelsey Creek into
      Clear Lake. To get to the outlet park at the north end of the Visitor
      Center parking lot in Clear Lake State Park (day use fee required) and
      look for the unmarked trail leading into the willows north of the
      parking lot. Follow the deer trails about 75 yards north to the tules,
      then turn east and look for the trail through the tules to the outlet
      of the creek. Watch for aerial yellowjacket nests in the willows along
      the way. It is not an easy walk as downed willow logs must be stepped
      over or ducked under at several points along the way. The island is
      visible with no rubber boots needed, however to see to the east or
      west of the island hip waders would be useful.

      Near noon today there were five Willets and one Marbled Godwit on the
      island at the outlet. There were also a few Western and Least
      Sandpipers, one Spotted Sandpiper and one American White Pelican. I
      also saw four Western Kingbirds which is unusual for this location.

          This afternoon (10/15/13) there was a Marbled Godwit at the outlet of Kelsey Creek in Clear Lake State Park. It was resting on the long spit of land on the west side of the outlet along with an estimated 350 American White Pelicans.
