I birded Mingo & Duck Creek for 1-1/2 hours on Saturday, February 1, with a young friend, after enjoying the Eagle Day program with MDC, USFWS and the World Bird Sanctuary.

 

Most notable are the redwing males back on territory and singing, the first Green-winged Teal of the year, and an unidentified yellowish warbler (Pine or Palm?) at Otter Slough.

 

Almost clear skies, light south wind, temperature reaching mid-sixties.
