I am taking a writing course from Wendee Holtcamp, and needed to work on a journaling exercise so I headed out to Fernhill Wetlands. It was a very gray day, and quite chilly, but I was struck by the amount of white to be found in the birdlife. Large rafts of Common Mergansers, the typical flock of Mew and California Gulls, the heads and tails of the resident Bald Eagles, Great Egrets, and a flock of Tundra Swans really brightened up the landscape. There are always colors to be had, even on a gray day, but you have to appreciate big splashes of white, even after Labor Day.

White is the new black afterall. Cool website! Someday, I will book a personal birding tour with you.
Hi John, I saw a blue tagged Tundra Swan Sunday at Ridgefield. I can send you a photo if you like.
Pam, you can report marked or banded birds at http://www.reportband.gov. They will then send you information about the bird and where he/she was banded.
Will do, John. Thank you.
