The high water of Malheur Lake still yielding sightings. Counted 10767 birds along Hwy 205 at the Narrows Yesterday, counting only on the Malheur Lake side and ignoring all the birds in the flooded fields on the west side of the road, as they are outside of the refuge. Ran into Wilson Cady today, who told me of a Sabine's gull on Ruh Red Rd.; still more sightings of immature red-necked grebes; still juvenile Clark's grebes in all stages of development, from riding on parents backs to full sized but immature plumage. A ruff spent a couple of days just off the road.
