    There was a Northern Waterthrush at Berkeley Aquatic Park this morning.
    To find the spot walk north along the east side, passing Disc-Golf
    "hole" #5, then "teeing" spot #5. Soon there will be dense growth of
    reeds and willows on your right. I stood at an opening near the metal
    grate valve box, a large cypress to my right. The bird chipped for
    quite a while before it showed itself. I waited maybe 20-25 minutes,
    hearing the bird the whole time. 
    
    On the other side, perhaps 80 meters north of the boat house was a
    tight flock of 144 Goldeneye of which 3 were Barrows.
