      Sat, 28 Apr 2001 -- The team of Vaughn, Keiffer, Matthiessen, Chaniot, and
      Tobkin did a Mendocino Big Day today starting at 04:00 near Hopland for
      owling and hign chaparral and ending at sunset scoping off of Laguna Point
      for seabirds. The result was 149 species, about average for the eleven
      years that this approximate route has been run. The day began with Barn Owl
      and ended with Wandering Tattler - with a number of notable misses in
      between.
      Some of the day's highlights were a HERMIT WARBLER near Hopland, a
      pair of HOODED ORIOLES building a nest in a palm on Pomo Drive in Ukiah, a
      TRICOLORED BLACKBIRD on Burris Lane in Potter Valley, a LONG-BILLED CURLEW
      at Virgin Creek Beach, a COMMON MOORHEN at Lake Cleone close to the parking
      lot, and a mystery peep at the Ukiah Sewage Treatment Plant (the size of a
      Least, black legs, and an orangish-yellow bill !?)
