The Eugene Wednesday birders went to the Delta Ponds. It was cold and
foggy but the visibility was good for several hundred yards. We parked at
the north end of the ponds and spent more than an hour on the trail leading
east from the parking lot. A few in the group headed home afterwards,
while Tom and I continued around the big loop to the river and back.
Greater White-fronted Goose – one with a small group of Canada Geese
Wood Duck – common and scattered
Green-winged Teal – a few in the pond near the footbridge.
Hooded Merganser – one male
Pied-billed Grebe - lots
Double-crested Cormorant – large groups
Great Blue Heron
Red-shouldered Hawk – one near the Valley River Center parking lot.
Black Phoebe – two or three
Bushtit – three large groups
Lesser Goldfinch – a few
American Goldfinch – only one
Dark-eyed Junco – one slate-colored
Golden-crowned Sparrow – not as many as expect to see in these habitats
Lincoln's Sparrow - one
