This morning, 1/12/18, I birded the Sunnyvale WPCP. The folks removing cattails and sedges were working on the south re-circ channel so I avoided the disturbance there and walked around the east pond. From the west end of the landfill I noted that most of the ducks have left the west pond (I've seen that in some past years). There was a male and female HOODED MERGANSER in the Lockheed Martin ponds. The only ducks in greater than average numbers were Gadwall on the east pond (387). I counted at least five COMMON GALLINULES, all along the east re-circ channel. Also along that channel were at least seven WILSON'S SNIPE. Also seven SORA were calling along the Moffett Channel or the marsh north of the east pond. A pair of GREAT-TAILED GRACKLES were flying near the SMART station. Among the Song Sparrows, I found two wintering birds. One was a classic dark brown /morphna /Song Sparrow with more of the coloring of a Sooty Fox Sparrow than the other Song Sparrows. The second was a much whiter bird underneath but with reddish and gray on the crown and face.
