Barry and I spent a very enjoyable 3 hours, hiking a large loop around the Twin Creeks Sports Complex and Sunnyvale Baylands, 10am to 1pm. We failed to find any sign of a flock of Blackbirds/Cowbirds which might contain the Yellow-headed blackbird originally found by Brooke Miller.
However, Salt pond A4 had a marvelous abundance and variety of hundreds of diving ducks and grebes, including at least one RED-BREASTED MERGANSER and 2 CLARKE’S GREBES. Another pleasant sighting was a SPOTTED SANDPIPER, bob-bob-bobbing his way down the low-tide, muddy channel between the sports complex and A4, a first for this location for us. A couple of heard-only SORA were also worth mention.
