More waterfowl and sparrows than I've previously seen here. Inflow was occurring in Cell 2, which flooded the weedy areas and provided excellent habitat for dabblers. In turn, there were many more sparrows elsewhere on the site which were probably flushed out from Cell 2 and into drier areas.

  8. Mallard x American Black Duck (hybrid)

    Number observed: 7

    Comments: Flagged as high count. Probably much higher than this. I looked at 15 ABDU-type ducks close up and at least 6 of them had green on the head. There was another obvious hybrid elsewhere. The rest were too far to tell so I left them as pure ABDU.

    Comments: Flagged as high count. Oddly enough, neither were offshore. There was an adult male (with comma) in the swirling mass of ducks in Cell 6, and a female (possibly a young bird) resting along the Cell 4D tidal inlet.

  32. Number observed: 18
  33. Number observed: 8

    Comments: Flagged as high count. There might have been some overlap, but I definitely saw 5 birds simultaneously in Cell 2B and there were others scattered across the site. Could have been 10+ total.

  34. Number observed: 4

    Comments: An adult flew from Cell 5AB to Coaches I carrying a long plume of nesting material.

    Breeding Code: CN Carrying Nesting Material (Confirmed)
  35. Number observed: 1

    Comments: Calling from Coaches I.

  36. Number observed: 1

    Comments: Perched atop a bare tree on Coaches I.

    Comments: Singing on Coaches I.

  43. Number observed: 2

    Comments: Flagged as rare. First site record. In the Spartina grasses in Cell 1B. I believe these are two different birds. The first has a dull orange color on the face and breast, whereas the second has bright orange on the face and dull orange on the breast. It was suggested that these are both alter in different stages of molt.
