It is great to see the water level coming up in the lakes, rivers, ponds and sloughs. Last fall and over the winter most of the shallow wetlands were completely dried up. There were thousands of ducks, geese, Coots and pelicans the day that I was there. A Northern Harrier flew over and scattered all of the ducks from one end of the slough to the other. I also saw a Marbled Godwit, which apparently was a pretty good sighting for this area. You'll have to go look that one up in your bird guides, because I only got a few blurry images of the bird in the distance.
