- The Emperor Goose continues at Rodman Slough. I viewed the bird from the pullout about 4/10ths of a mile from the Rodman Slough bridge today at about 11 A.M. No leg bands have been detected. The goose has dark marks on the white head and neck. It appears to be a 1st winter bird. Jerry W.

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.
