Tuesday in CoCoCo: a sparrow near vespers and a dipped duck

David Quady and Nancy Boas

Hi, Birders:

On 6 March I spent an hour or so mid-day scoping for the male Tufted Duck off the Bethel Island Marina, but dipped on the bird. The diving waterfowl were quite distant, and the sun’s glare also didn’t help.

At the Sindicich Ponds (why are they named ‘lagoons?’) at the center of Briones Regional Park, the long-staying Vesper Sparrow obligingly perched up in the late afternoon, in good view on the west edge of the upper pond — the one nearer the Old Briones Road Trail.

Good birding.
