Went to Eagle Bluffs CA this morning in hopes of finding the stilt.   Didn't
find it --- and think there was a good "turn over" in birds last night.   I
did not find any phalaropes or avocets, but some ibis still present. Several
big flocks of pectoral sandpipers in the back of Pool 10.    I walked the
levee along side Pool 8 and had 3-5 Northern Waterthrushes, palm warbler,
Nashville, yellow and too-numerous-to-count Yellow-rumps.   Was also very
pleased to see both Sandhill Cranes poking their heads above the cattails.
Baltimore and Orchard orioles seem to have arrived in good numbers, and the
Indigo Buntings are back.   Two forster's terns put on a good show for
photographers.  Pelicans are gone.

 

I took a short walk along the levee toward the disabled blind on the
distribution channel --- and at almost high noon had singing Black-throated
Green, Prothonotary, Nashville, Yellow, Tennessee warblers; an American
Redstart, Warbling and Red-eyed Vireos, Gray Catbird and Rose-breasted
Grosbeak.   (all in a little cut-away area near "gate 46").
