Saturday morning, there’s a male Wood Duck on the flooded sod farm pond in the TRV, behaving shy, so it’s probably a legitimate rare spring migrant rather than a wanderer from one of the feral populations locally. First of season arrival group of four Wilsons and one Red-necked Phalaropes at the salt works off 13th Street. A few Chats have arrived in the Tijuana River Valley. The typical spring concentration of gulls on the J Street mud flats for the middle of April, with about 800 ugly immature California gulls and only 10 or so remaining Ring billed Gulls. Sweetwater Reservoir has continuing adult Bald Eagle.
