On 10-18-03 I birded from Point Arena to Rockport. In the predawn darkness
at 6:53 am I heard a Marbled Murrelet flying overhead where Hwy. 1 crosses
Alder Creek. There was a single Ross' Goose with the Canada Geese in the Garcia
River Bottoms. I saw one of the Tropical Kingbirds; this time it was in the
field to the south of Point Arena Lighthouse Road, best seen from the highest
point along that road. This Tropical Kingbird one had a full tail, I think I saw
the other one too but could not refind it. There was also a Chestnut-sided
Warbler near the mouth of Howard Creek.
