Subject: Red Slough Bird Survey - Oct. 27
It was heavy overcast, cool, windy, and misting rain on the bird survey
today. 66 species were found. Land birds were scarce but waterfowl was in
abundance. It looks like the Purple Gallinules have all left but I wouldn't
be surprised if there are still one or two out there still. There are still
2 nestling Neotropic Cormorants being fed in the heronry. King Rails were
pretty vocal this morning early. Here is my list for today:
