Tweets – a pleasant morning under a thin overcast. “Threatening” mizzle failed to arrive. But birds were pretty scarce too.

Highlights:
a.. Gadwall – seen in slough from entrance bridge – first in months
b.. Green Heron – two, including juvenile at Rowing Club
c.. CALIFORNIA QUAIL – male SEEN along far shore across from 1st Dog Swim Beach
d.. Barn Owl – two sightings, East Meadow at 5:30, and south of there at 6:10
e.. Western Screech-Owl – heard from across the slough from the Lake Platform predawn
f.. Willow Flycatcher – one seen was our only flycatcher
g.. Violet-green Swallow – maybe a half-dozen after recent zero counts
h.. Barn Swallow – still dozens
i.. Marsh Wren – several, after weeks of zero of one heard
j.. Swainson’s Thrush – one glimpsed, ~20 heard calling
k.. Orange-crowned Warbler – only warbler besides yellowthroats, maybe 6
l.. Lincoln’s Sparrow – one seen briefly at Viewing Mound – First of Fall
For the day, just 51 species, but that’s 5 more than last week.
