Description

I found this guy in my old backyard on Columbia St. (map location is approximate). My guess is it migrated from Neary's Lagoon.

Description

I saw this odd duck years ago in Neary's Lagoon, Santa Cruz. I think it may be a hybrid or mutant: the overall body pattern is mallard, but the blue bill and brown head are confusing. It was seen associating with other mallards, but was a bit larger than them. After consulting the Sibley guide, I'm pretty certain it's a mallard-domestic hybrid.

These cliff swallows would make nests under the eaves of the main library every year: the walkways would be spattered with bits of mud and feathers. I wonder if they still return after all the new construction at Cabrillo.
