Hi Birders, Two of us walked Crittenden Marsh today starting at the Kite Parking lot.
Some notables: - Large numbers of readhead ducks (87) in Crittenden, many near duck blind #6. Males were brilliant in the bright sun. - In the SW corner of the Stevens Creek Study area we ran into a mix of marble godwits, long-billed curlews and whimbrels resting on water's edge. We counted at least 24 long-billed curlews and 6 whimbrels. - Greater scaups (4) - Eurasian wigeon (1)
