A Snow Goose and a Ross's Goose were among large flocks of Canada and
Cackling Geese west of the River S this morning on Bachelor Island. At some
point they are bound to cross into the public area on River S.

Hi All,

Dwight Porter and I visited Ridgefield's River 'S' Unit today. Our
highlights included the following:

- American Bittern (1)
- Barn Owl (1 adult female east of road between markers 5 and 6)
- Red-tailed Hawk (what we believe to be a light morph Harlan's)
- Red-shouldered Hawk (1 adult)
- Peregrine Falcon (2)
- Black Phoebe (1 between markers 10 and 11)
- Trumpeter Swan (heard only among hundreds of Tundras)
- Muskrat
- Raccoon
- Coyote

Good birding!

Rhett Wilkins
