Harlequin Ducks +OT
- Early Monday afternoon (4/1) Vishnu observed 2 pairs of Harlequin Ducks
preening and resting on the rocks 150 yds north of the mouth of Virgin
Creek. An earlier search at Glass Beach had produced nothing.
However - going off topic here for anyone who may be in the area for the
next week or two - the ocean bluffs starting about 100 yds north of Glass
beach and extending most of the way to Pudding Creek are carpeted with Baby
Blue Eyes, Cream Cups and an unknown yellow daisy. The effect is spectacular
and having spent much of the past week at coastal spots from Sonoma to
northern Humboldt counties I can say that this stretch far and away has the
best current coastal wildflower display viewed in the 3 counties.
