Thanks to Juliana's timely post, I was able to see 2 *Wilson's Snipes* this
evening (March 11) at the pond in Coast Casey Forebay visible from the dirt
trail along Terminal Blvd. Also in that pond was the continuing *Eurasian
Green-winged Teal*.

In the small pond to the west of the pump house, there was a *Common

Flying around the pump house were over 25 swallows. Most were *Cliff
Swallows*, some were *Barn Swallows*, and there were also at least one each
of *Tree Swallow*, *Violet-green Swallow*, and *Northern Rough-winged
Swallow*. The Cliff Swallows and Barn Swallows are new arrivals for today.
They were not there yesterday.

Yesterday's highlights at Shoreline Lake were 4 *Great-tailed Grackles* on
the pier in the northwest corner and the continuing male *Hooded Merganser*
near the island. The Hooded Merganser was not there today, so maybe it is
the same male that Juliana saw on Permanente Creek.
