What a surprise when I looked at a small, dark duck at the bottom of the gravel boat ramp this morning--what I'm calling a first-year Wood Duck.  Then, it was suddenly three of them.

Ted Robertson was not far away, so he came over and photographed them.  Look for his Heather Farm eBird report later from this link:  https://ebird.org/region/US-CA-013/activity?yr=all&m=

Yesterday morning Fred Safier had a Western Sandpiper at the same location.  His report and photos can be found at the same link.
