The Falcated Duck is back at Colusa Refuge. A friend and I went out there yesterday and sure enough, easy to see and ID. I only have a point and shoot so my photos are not worth posting of the falcated. Word at the refuge is it's going to be hard to find parking on the weekends.

We did a big loop from Chico starting at the Llano Secco platforms off 7 mile lane and were treated to a Peregrine and Prairie falcon besides many Kestrels, Sandhill cranes, 5 Eurasian wigeon, a bald eagle, and gazzilions of pintails, am. wigeons, shovelers, snow, white fronted, and ross's geese.

These photos with Lassen in the background are from the Sacramento Refuge loop off hwy 5.

Aaah, birds are so... cheering. It is good to see these pictures.

(And I started out cheerful - this thread feeds into my point-of-view.)
