A CORE crew stopped by on their way home and Ben mentioned that they thought
they saw and heard a Sandhill Crane.  Minutes later as I was scoping the
gull raft out in Ellis Bay I heard a weird cackling sound across the street.
Quickly glassing Dragonfly Marsh I spotted the Sandhill on the opposite
shore. Not much light left.

Four Surf Scoters just above rock jetty at edge of dam.

Four Black Scoters still above Clark Bridge. Lesser Black-backed Gull in
Ellis Bay gull raft. Did not find the Long-tailed Duck.

Gallery - Just started processing so will be awhile before complete. Check
back later.
