Frank's Dump: We hustled through Frank's Dump today - 45 minutes out to the bridge and back, with a long time scoping the big pond south of the parking lot from many angles. We managed to find four new duck species, each represented by 1 - 4 individuals: Northern Pintail, Greater Scaup, Bufflehead, and American Wigeon. This is starting to look better for our upcoming big day.

But the eucalyptus grove coughed up N-O-T-H-I-N-G. House sparrows and not one other species -- until the juvenile accipiter came between us & the car. That was a treat in the desert!

Emeryville: Drove directly to the last parking lot at the end of Powell and walked out the fishing pier. No other stops made at this location Also saw Accipiter sp.
