We spent a couple of hours at Woods Reservoir both yesterday and today.  Both 
times we drove around the lake and stopped at various spots to scan the water.  
Yesterday we seen 35 species and today we seen 27 for a total of 39 species for 
the weekend.  There is a huge raft of horned grebes that number at least a 1000 
above the dam that was seen both days.  Today, we seen a flock of crows that 
numbered at least 200.  We watched an immature red-tailed hawk eating a road 
killed deer right next to the road until a bald eagle showed up.  I may not 
have noticed the eagle had the bird not looked up and hunkered down.  I finally 
was able to see the pacific loon yesterday, but didn't get to see it today.  I 
was at the lake the same day Chloe reported it (in fact, I spotted Chloe and 
her brother), but I didn't see the bird that day.  We watched it yesterday for 
over 30 minutes before we were convinced what we were seeing.  The bird kept 
diving and was only up for about a minute before it would go back down.  Lots 
and lots of birds above the dam yesterday.
