Many species of ducks and other birds although the Eurasian Green-winged Teal was not seen this morning. Saw three Franklin's Gulls with bright red bills and large white primary tips. Seven Spotted Sandpipers lined the first pond's edge. Saw three male and one female Wood Ducks and seven Wilson's Phalaropes. One adult Osprey repeatedly flew low over the water with feet extended. Also, three White-Faced Ibis were in the flooded field at Pine Creek Rd and Hwy 395.
