The Philomath Sewage Ponds were rather productive for waterfowl diversity this morning, with 18 species of ducks (no geese present). Besides the usual species, I was able to pick out one female BLUE-WINGED TEAL, a male REDHEAD, a female CANVASBACK, a female GREATER SCAUP, and a female SURF SCOTER.
Other species of note included an EARED GREBE and a DOUBLE-CRESTED CORMORANT.
Six MEADOWLARKS were in the big field to the west of the ponds, a couple of them singing.
