      An early morning visit to Cheney Reservoir yielded many duck species, despite the stiff breeze on the water.  They included:
      Bufflehead
      N. Pintail
      Gadwall
      N. Shoveler
      All 3 Teal species
      Lesser Scaup
      Ring Necks
      Redheads
      Common Mergs
      Ruddy Ducks
      Mallard

      In addition, 2 Ring Bill Gulls, a lone DC Cormorant, Kestrel male and female, a lone Golden Eagle being harassed by Ravens, the usual suspects of Horned Larks, Western Meadowlarks singing their hearts out, REWI's and a large raft of American Coots.

      Yesterday, along the Riverfront Trail just east of 29 Rd on the large pond, two Western Grebes were present and vocalizing.  An osprey was in and around a nest used last year that perches atop a set of power poles.

      Happy Spring Birding All,
      Cary Atwood & Leon Thurmon
