Treadway’s Fish Farm 3/27/2009

I arrived at 8:06 AM. The skies were clear, surprisingly, the temperature nice and little or no wind. Started seeing ducks right off the bat. After all the recent rain, the roads were a little soft and one spot in particular near the eastern side where there was no gravel was especially soft. I saw at least two breeding plumage Bonaparte’s Gulls which was nice.
