Nov. 15. It seemed that all of the geese slept in and "the" goose did not appear
till about 6:30 and it came up a bit north of the usual location. It did come up
alone and did join three Greater White-fronted Geese which had flown into the
field earlier in the usual location. The past few days they have spent most of
their mornings in the weedy grass field about seven borders east of Vendel Road
and about half way between the second curve and the view tower.
An adult Yellow-footed Gull was seen after noon from the north levee on the high
and dry Red Hill Marina. It was very far out on the rock jetty visible to the
northeast with the steel post at the end of it. The jetty is loaded with birds
and a scope is required. Not a great look by any means but it might well be the
only look at a Yellow-footed Gull on the entire Salton Sea right now.
The Common Loon reported from Red Hill Marina did not make it and the remains
are lying on the beach.
Nov. 16. This is the first morning I have not been there. Wish I could have sid
the same about a couple of gulls on the coast but this bird happened to land in
See ya at the sea..........
