    The shrike was later seen around 3pm on one of the solitary trees on the landfill behind the retention pond.
    Also… northern shoveler in the retention pond. At least 3 red-tails overhead. Canvasbacks and gadwall over the mudflats (which were not muddy at the time.)
    Also seen: belted kingfisher, and a solitary american goldfinch.
    Lots of friendly and helpful birders out today.
