Loggerhead Shrike
Red-winged Blackbird
Brewers Blackbird
Great Blue Heron
Prairie Falcon
Northern Rough-legged Hawk
Song Sparrow
Marsh Wren
Starling
Ring-necked Pheasant

Northern Pintail
American Coot
Pied-billed Grebe
Common Merganser
American Wigeon
Green-winged Teal
Tundra Swan
Canada Goose
Red-tailed Hawk
Lots of Gulls
Ring-billed
California etc.
I am not very good with Gulls, I need go out with someone who is a Gull expert to help me.
Here are some pictures from today's birding
