August 31 Sweetwater Reservoir

At the moment there is a continuing Yellow-headed Blackbird at Sweetwater Reservoir. It is ALWAYS with the Red-winged Blackbirds who every 10 minutes fly up and land in a new location of the south shore. It is a female who only had the yellow coloration in the front making it hard to spot in flight and when feeding. There was also a courting pair of Vaux's Swifts. They were both out with the other swallows in the morning. One of the two Swifts kept dive bombing me making for better, but still horrible shots. They are unmistakable, seeing how they are the only swifts feeding with the swallows, followed with the fact they lack any white on their body. With the exception of the growing numbers of Red-necked Phalaropes, there really isn't anything else worth mentioning.
