Last trip into the closing areas of the Sloughs WMA for this year. It  
will not reopen until after March 15th, 2012.
Now I can devote more time to other areas of the Sloughs that remain  
open all year.

Duck numbers at Wood Tract were down a whole lot.
Geese (Canadas & GWF) were up with a mixed flock of about 500 between  
Muddy Slough and Hardy Slough.

1 VERY Late season Blue Grosbeak; female or 1st year male. Poor  
backlit photos.
I spotted it after hearing the distinctive "TINK".
