Richmond Today (3/29)

This afternoon about 1230 off Landfill Loop in Richmond, there is one each of Glaucous and Lesser Black-backed Gulls. The Black backed might be the bird from earlier in the winter, although it hasn’t been seen since Christmas time despite plenty of looking in the interim. This morning about 630am off Canal Blvd. both male Black Scoters continued, but a couple hours later only one was present. 25 or so Brant are still hanging out behind the jetty, and the California Gulls are back en masse on Brooks Island, presumably preventing the nesting of any Caspian Terns for another summer. And for you Alameda folks, a Cassins Kingbird was away from known locations yesterday evening on Patterson Pass rd., at the residence with the large Eucalyptus. This is East of Cross Rd., and East of where the road becomes one lane.
