I had a few nice sightings and one good sighting at the Coachline lakes today. Best had to be a good close look at a Pacific Wren along the SW edge. That stubby tail is so cute. Snowy Egret is always a pleasure, in particular as it landed by the two Great Blue Herons who croaked at it, driving it off.
Ducks are starting to increase in diversity.

The Sharp-shinned Hawk was harrassing the raven by the western ridge… as I watched it I spotted the vulture well over a thousand feet above.
