Lloyd Davis visited Powers Park (PP) and Gum Root Swamp (GR) today and came up with a nice list: American White Pelican (GR) 608 Great Blue Heron (PP) ~100 Great Egret (PP) ~100 Gadwall (PP) 1 American Wigeon (PP, GR) 5 Mottled Duck (GR) 2 Blue-winged Teal (PP, GR) ~200 Northern Shoveler (PP, GR) 36 Green-winged Teal (PP, GR) ~350 Canvasback (PP) 1 apparent imm. male Redhead (PP) 4 (1 male, 3 females) Hooded Merganser (PP, GR) 245 Lloyd saw only three shorebird species - Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs and Common Snipe. Last week Judy Bryan saw Northern Pintails at the Windsor boat ramp, and yesterday I heard a Golden-crowned Kinglet at Gum Root (family walk: not allowed to bird on pain of dismemberment, which doesn't bother me, and loss of binoculars, which does). Lloyd saw Laughing, Bonaparte's, and Ring-billed Gulls today; nobody's seen the Franklin's since the 19th.
