- This afternoon I found a White-winged Dove (1st county record) in the town of Kelseyville.The bird was first seen perched on the utility wires in front of the residence at 5205 3rd street about 3:30PM. It then flew across the street (to the east) and was briefly perched on a garage.
The Brown Pelican was seen again (happily swimming and feeding near the shoreline) on Clear Lake from Lakeshore Blvd (west of Hammond Ave.) in Nice.Unfortunately getting a good view of the lake is difficult because all the lakefront parcels are privately owned in this area.
There was also an adult Glaucous-winged Gull on the pilings at Austin Park in Clearlake. Jerry White

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.
