      April 17, 2004 - Saturday - From 0900 to 1130 - Bob & Ryan Keiffer, Marie
      and Tess Behnke birded the Ukiah Sewage Treatment Plant.
      Highlights included a female Blue-winged Teal mixed with several
      Green-winged Teal. There was a strange looking female duck with the few
      Ring-necked Ducks, which I now embarrassingly realize (thanks to John
      Sterling's report) was a female Redhead. Other waterfowl included about
      20 bufflehead, several Great Basin Canada Geese, several Ruddy Ducks, and
      of course Mallards which included one head with 7 newly hatched young. 6
      Least Sandpipers and a few Killdeer comprised the only
      shorebirds. Yellowthroats were calling from the marsh vegetation. Singing
      Black-headed Grosbeaks from the river and a handful of White-crowned
      sparrows finished the morning's adventure. Bob Keiffer
