      Thursday, August 14, 2003, Debra Shearwater reports a Yellow-headed
      Blackbird mixed in with a flock of other blackbirds at the Ukiah Sewage
      Treatment Plant.
      She also had a huge flock of mixed neotropic migrants (warblers, vireos,
      grosbeaks, etc.) at the Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg in the late
      afternoon. She mentioned that it was one of the largest mixed flocks of
      neotropic migrants that she has witnessed and was able to view many, many
      birds from one spot as the flock moved past in the trees. She did not
      spot any Mendocino County rarities in the flock. However, there was a
      Costa's Hummingbird at a feeder at the Botanical Gardens. Debra did see a
      couple of Willow Flycatchers.
