      Saturday, 2 January 2010, was quite foggy along the south coast of
      Mendocino County between Elk and the Point Arena lighthouse.  The
      total species seen on count day this year was 137.  Highlights included
      (3) CATTLE EGRET, CINNAMON TEAL, REDHEAD, (2) ROUGH-
      LEGGED HAWK, (3) PACIFIC  GOLDEN-PLOVER, and (2) SLATE-
      COLORED JUNCOS.

      During the "count week," three days prior to and following the actual
      count day, three additional species were seen by Rich Trissel.  They
      were: (6) BRANT, EURASIAN WIGEON, and BARN SWALLOW.
      The number of TUNDRA SWANS dropped considerably from previous
      years' totals.  The estimate of the wintering population this year is only
      about 40-45 individuals. 

      Thanks again to the area leaders: Chris Bing, Dave Jensen, Bob Keiffer,
      Art Morley, Rich Kuehn, Connie Schimbor & Diane Hichwa.  Thanks
      also to Todd Easterla, who roamed around the count area and provided
      a few species not found by others during the day.
