      Wed-Fri, 10/13-15/2010 -- There is a vagrant, hybrid N. FLICKER in the Ocean
      Meadows/Ten Mile Area.  This female Flicker has mostly Yellow-shafted
      characteristics, but she has a small, red diamond-shaped spot on the nape
      and dijon mustard under-shafts and feathers.  These vagrant hybrids hail
      from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Montana or N Dakota, etc.

      Today, 10/15, I saw a number of migrant geese around the Ten Mile R. bridge.
      There were 2 (ALEUTIAN) CACKLING GEESE, 12(MINIMA) CACKLING
      GEESE, and 14 GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GEESE.  Also present were
      several ducks, but the light was very bright on the water, so the species
      remainded a mystery.  A few DOWITCHERs fed on the south shore.
