I didn’t see anything too exciting yesterday. An American White Pelican has been reported from the Alameda Bridge area earlier this week, but I missed it–in between two sightings in the morning and one less than an hour after I left. And there’s no way to miss a big, white pelican unless it doesn’t want to be seen. I did add two county birds, though: Greater Yellowlegs and Great Egret. Maybe it was a great day after all.
This beaver was struggling against the current in the diversion ditch east of the river:
