Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Shrike still at Eagle Marsh as of Thursday, good ducks
Belated report form Thursday at Eagle Marsh. Shrike still present in early
morning. Open water was flowing in the ditches along the CD fed by the
waste plant outlet. Felt bad chasing the mallards from both directions but
finally saw Pintail, H Merg and Shoveler among them. A Goldeneye flew by
as well. Was looking for the RL hawk but actually saw 2 RT (one was first
year) and N Harrier. At Fox Island the trails were iced and hikers not
welcome on most of them anyhow so I left but managed to find a towhee by
the sheds.
