- This evening at about 7PM at the Kelsey Creek mudflats in Clear Lake State Park I saw a juvenile Least Bittern.
There was also an American Bittern and 2 Short-billed Dowitchers.

There is a Tundra Swan (Imm.) feeding just West of the Rodman Slough Island. The bird didn't seem to mind that I was only about 50 yards from it. Also, just east (20 yards)of the Rodman Slough Bridge there is a Phainopepla. This is the exact place I saw two of them earlier in the year on the North side of the road.
