Great-tailed Grackle at Rodman Slough
- Thu, 2 Jul 2009 -- This morning I went to Rodman Slough for my third try for
GREAT-TAILED GRACKLE, and I succeeded. I set up my scope at the green gate
to the east of the bridge at number 1830 and scoped the rice fields and
trees to the north. It took about 15 minutes before I saw one sitting in
the top of a dead tree to the NW - in line with the pumphouse. The scope
was really necessary to pull this one in from public access on dry land.
