Subject: [MBBIRDS] Struve Slough to Swanton Road (S. to N. SC County)
Today's Santa Cruz Bird Club trip went from south to north county.



A great thanks to Brian for posting sightings as went along, while I drove -
what a team.



To round out some sightings of note (not including sightings already posted
by Brian):



Lee Road / Struve Slough = West Struve Slough

2 HOODED MERGANSERS (1 male/female pair) seen from Lee Road in Struve Slough
where is joins Watsonville Slough. These were scope birds.

9 GREAT-TAILED GRACKLES (4 male and five female) - moving around and
spread-out

1 BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER

20+ TREE / VIOLET GREEN SWALLOWS - at least 2 Violet-green and 6 Tree - the
rest of group moving through was not scrutinized



Harkins Slough

1 CANVASBACK (Male)

2 WILSON SNIPE

16 WHITE-FACED IBIS



Some numbers of CINNIMON TEAL (~20) and GREEN-WINGED TEAL (~20), here,
too.



Hwy 1 and Dimeo Road - near landfill / Wilder Ranch horse camp / artificial
ponds (private property / Granite Rock quarry ponds???)

2 BALD EAGLES - one adult pair circling over area, slow south movement.
Open question as it is one of the birds is the same one seen flying south
past Swanton Road pond, earlier.



Happy Birding

Eric Feuss (Soquel)
