Subject: [southbaybirds] Common gallinule report and miscellaneous sightings
|After my 6/8/2018 report of 5 /*Common gallinule*/ juveniles at WTCP in
Sunnyvale, I followed up with two more visits two weeks apart.
-the juveniles were down from 5 to 4
-there were two adults associated with the juveniles and 3 more Common
gallinule adults at other locations
-there were still 4 juveniles; about 3/4 size of adults with brown
feathers on the back; where adults have white tinges on flanks the
juveniles had cream colored instead
-there were two adults associated with the juveniles but no other
adults were seen
At Charleston slough I did not see any indication of /*Common
gallinule*/ breeding activity over the last 6 weeks; one adult Common
gallinule was seen on the North side of the forebay on 6/19/2018.
On the miscellaneous side, all sightings below were at WTCP
-at least one /*Green heron */on each of my visits
-5 male /*Great tailed grackles */ on both 6/22 and 7/6
-large flocks of/*blackbirds*/ over the marsh with many juveniles and
females, but no unusual types
-good numbers of /*Marsh wrens*/ (10+) many of them juveniles
-/*White-tailed kites*/ and/*kestrels */in small numbers
