Subject: Red Slough Bird Survey - Jan. 30
Mike Weber (TX) and I surveyed birds today at Red Slough and found 68
species. It was mostly clear, cool (50's), and a bit windy. Biggest
highlight of the day was a Crested Caracara sitting on the Otter Lake levee
with some Turkey Vultures. Will post photos later. Also, 3 Tree Swallows
were feeding over Lotus Lake which is two weeks early for them to be back.
Also had a King Rail. Duck numbers are way down. Here is our list for
