Mendocino Coast; August 23rd & 24th
- On Monday the 23rd there were 2 White-winged Scoters amongst a large flock of Surf Scoters at Ward Avenue.
On Tuesday the 24th at the Garcia River estuary there were 2 Black-crowned Night-Herons and 4 ELEGANT TERNS. A Peregrine Falcon (I saw a total of 4 during the 2 days) kept chasing off the shorebirds, but 2 Marbled Godwits did land briefly.
There was some evidence of land bird migration with a Townsend's Warbler on Miner Hole Road and Warbling Vireos, a Cassin's Vireo, and a Yellow Warbler at Windy Hollow. Jerry White
