Fwd: eBird Report - Spring Valley Reservoir , 5/15/09

A quick afternoon trip to Spring Valley Res. east of Moscow produced a California Gull - uncommon in the county but seemingly regular at this location at least in June and perhaps earlier in spring. Also a breeding plumage Horned Grebe and the usual suspects listed below. Syringa just on the eastern edge of Moscow failed to produce phalaropes but did have 7 species of waterfowl plus a bunch of coots (full list below). This small pair of ponds is often virtually devoid of waterbirds but at other times can be quite busy.

good bird'n!
