Stopped at Dumas Bay this afternoon and marveled at the 400 - 500
Bonaparte's Gulls on the beach and water. They would take flight every so
often and put on quite a show. Eventually most of them formed two large
rafts about a mile off shore. Tried to find a rare gull or jaeger with them,
but no luck. There were small numbers of Mew -, California - and Glaucous
-winged Gulls at the beach. Also had my FOS Eurasian Wigeon with the growing
number of American Wigeons there.

Treasure Island had 86 Canada Geese and one "minima" type Cackler yesterday.
They made a total mess of the walkways and none of them were present this
evening, except for 3 Cackling Geese. The minima was joined by two slightly
larger geese.
