Subject: LAS Field Trip: Diamond Creek Pond, So. Reno
The Diamond Creek Pond seems to be a little unknown birding hotspot and it
didn't disappoint on Friday's outing. There were 15 birders out to walk
around the pond and a visit to the marsh on the east end. The first bird
was a flyover of a SNOW GOOSE and a RED-TAIL HAWK perched on one of
apartment buildings. If you have visited the area before the summer you
will be surprise at the changes. The are 250 apartments on the west end
closing in the pond similar to Virginia Lake, however, the number of
species was great although the number of individuals were low. Notable
birds were a female COMMON GOLDENEYE, HOODED and COMMON MERGANERS, 2
immature BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON, 4 VIRGINIA RAIL calling, 2
