Subject: Peace Valley Park (IBA) -(2/18-2/24), etc.
The species count was 70 this past week. Some highlights include:
1 Ross's Goose to at least 2/19
Cackling Goose -high report 2 2/19 (photo)
28 Tundra Swan 2/24 (photo)-continuing 2/25
13 duck species including Wood Duck, Amer. Wigeon, N. Pintail, Lesser Scaup, Hooded Merganser, Red-breasted Merganser
The huge Common Merganser numbers vanished quickly with the warm weather.
Red-shouldered Hawk
5 gull species including 1 Iceland Gull 2/18
1 Merlin 2/20
1 Fox Sparrow was regular at the bird blind.

Thanks to all who reported their sightings.

The Harris's Sparrow & Western Tanager are still present as far as I known, but apparently not as regular as earlier.
The Sandhill Cranes were regular at Pine Run Dam.
