Abnormally good day at the ranch yesterday. There were two adult male common mergansers (COME) along with four juvis and/or females.
Two belted kingfishers (BEKI) appeared to be having a loud argument that went on for five minutes along the river next to the employee parking lot.
Two couples of American green-winged teals (AGWT) and a family of cinnamon teals (CITE) were dabbling along with the usual mallards and coots. Buffleheads (BUFF) were present in their usual numbers (about ten), along with the half-dozen resident double-crested cormorants (DCCO).
