Blue-winged Teal, pelican redux

This morning Danny Rohan reported a drake Blue-winged Teal at the outflow (far end, that is) of the overflow channel between Cells 1 and 2 at Sweetwater Wetlands Park.

At 4:43 yesterday afternoon Erin Kalinowski emailed, “The pelican must be playing a joke on you … currently, it’s sitting on the same snag as last night. It looks very comfortable, so maybe it will stick around.”

She added, “Last night, a Great Horned Owl was perched in the same oak as last year and easily viewable.” Anyone interested in meeting at the boardwalk for Great Horned and maybe Barn Owls one evening this weekend?
