I checked the Sheridan sewage pond again this afternoon during a window
in the rain.  I made my observation from the on-ramp to the highway,
west of the ponds.
The population of waterfowl had changed a little from what I saw on Oct.
13 & 17.  A couple good year birds.

     1        Great Blue Heron
     1        WESTERN GREBE
   10       Canada Geese
   25        Cackling Geese
    3        Wood Duck 
   15       American Wigeon
   25       Mallard
  200     Northern Shoveler
     4        Green-winged Teal
     1        Canvasback male
     3        REDHEADS (hard to find in Yamhill county!)
   35       Ring-necked Duck
    15       Lesser Scaup
      2       GREATER SCAUP (I find a couple annually)
     2        SURF SCOTER (females again)
     9        Hooded Merganser
   100       Ruddy Duck  
   200     American Coot
      6        Killdeer
      3        Greater Yellowlegs
      1       Kingfisher
     6        Red-winged Blackbird
     2        Robins

Good birding, everyone,
