Subject: [IBLE] Siphon Rd wetlands Sunday
I visited the spring fed, Portneuf River wetlands along Siphon Rd
(Chubbuck) Sunday morning. Open water is still holding a very nice
diversity of waterfowl, including about 40 trumpeter swans, mallards,
American wigeon, gadwall, northern pintail (1), northern shoveler (3),
green-winged teal, redhead, lesser scaup, bufflehead, common goldeneye and
150+ ring-necked ducks.

This location holds half-hardy species in the winter and I was able to find
3 yellow-rumped warbler (Audubon's), 2 Virginia rail and a marsh wren.
