Trip Notes

We parked at the south end of the Charleston Slough parking lot, walked around the northern end of the pond, went a short distance out onto the slough, then back for one last look at the pond. I was alerted by the BIRDWEST mailing list to the presence of a RED-NECKED GREBE at the pond, and had found it two days earlier. We found it again today at the end of our walk. We also found a BLUE-WINGED TEAL following a tip from a fellow birder. In a tableau of teals and ducks together, we were reminded how much smaller teals are than ducks. Also at the end of our walk we saw a BARROW'S GOLDENEYE across the pond. This sighting was confirmed Monday on BIRDWEST. Also saw Dowitcher sp.
