- I suppose you had a good reason for throwing rocks at the ducks.

Greetings Mendobirders: The Ukiah Sewage Treatment Plant oxidation ponds
continue to provide some surprisingly ducks for Mendocino County this
summer. This morning I saw 12 Redhead on the south pond, 6m and 6f (the
south pond is the only one with water presently). This was easily the
largest group of Redheads I've seen in the county. Unfortunately, they
flew as I approached throwing rocks, and disappeared N along the Russian
River. There is still a pair of Ruddy Ducks (m,f) on the pond, and today
there was a f Blue-winged Teal. The breeding pair of Cinnamon Teal remain,
and the 6-7 young birds are nearly ready to fly. I heard 2 Yellow breasted
Chats singing on the river.
