Male and female Common Mergansers were present along the west shoreline. On the way to Sacramento, the Tricolored Blackbird colony (about 30 birds) is active at the junction of Highways 88 and the next road south of Highway 207 in the reeds surrounding the pond. Also, on a completely different note, yesterday at Laws Pasture in the air at one time - 5 Swainson's Hawks - 2 RT Hawks - 2 No. Harriers and 1 Am Kestral. Amazing!!
