  8. dabbling duck sp.

    Number observed: 320

    Details: Tight group of dabblers in the center of Cell 6. I would imagine it was 50/50 NSHO/teal, with GWTE probably outnumbering BWTE. Difficult to analyze given the distance, lighting, and birds being in eclipse.

  34. shorebird sp.

    Number observed: 390
  35. Number observed: 1

    Details: Flagged as rare. First site record, second county record, eleventh state record. Matt Hafner once told me to check the flocks of LAGU here in September for a SAGU, and that's exactly how I found this bird. This bird was hugging the north shore of Cell 2C and was in the company of several LAGU. It left the cell twice but quickly reappeared. Many photos were obtained. I was able to show it to the birding tour as well as five of my coworkers. I last saw it flying out to join a large flock of LAGU feeding offshore, west of the island. The bird's bold black-and-white triangular wing patterning was especially striking in flight. I have been fortunate to find many rare birds onsite, but this was probably the rarest of them all.

    Details: Flagged as late. Very small tern flying N over Cell 2C and out to the bay. Gave a piercing "peek!" call.

  53. white egret sp.

    Number observed: 14

    Details: Upon arriving, I saw 18 egrets in Cell 3A. By the time I returned, only 1 GREG and 3 SNEG remained.

  60. Number observed: 1

    Details: Roosting in the open-fronted shed at the building complex (Cell 3A). Sixth site record.

    Media:

  70. Number observed: 1

    Details: Flagged as rare. First site record. I specifically checked a small flock of BHCO at the N end of Cell 2C since YHBL is known to join such flocks, and there it was - an immature male. It flew SE and was not relocated.
