111 pieces, American River Ph 9.0, Cordova Creek Ph 8.7. AR flows are still higher than average, someone has placed a makeshift wire cage/trap for the debris in just the right place (for now), as this thing appears to have captured a significant amount, but without the actual data, it is unknown. What is known is in the database and the following photos....oh, and dragonflies!

69 pieces, AR Ph 8.6, CC Ph 8.5, mergansers and cormorants. River still a little high, but going down. Erosion continues at outfall. And though spillway debris count was below average, the washout just down stream from spillway contained "numerous" debris items,( which I collected ), all of which had a familiar composition and type. Processing this separately, as its officially not within the survey perimeter, however, we are processing the data. Nice weather, how about that Spring! Pictures...

The schedule is: March 1, 2017, same time (11:30 a.m.)- same place (confluence of Cordova Creek and American River)- same day (every Wednesday). The river levels have decreased this week, and moderate weather should permit improved photo opportunities, as last week there were less wildlife encounters,( or I was not fast enough on the draw with my camera to snap any of the only visitor that day, a flycatcher 18 inches from my face...), either way, the survey mission will be executed. Because this is no banner ad, nor I a bot, something different is written in each announcement, including images. Because you took the time to read this post, I try to make it interesting, so here are some pics from previous surveys (2015-16), enjoy and see you there.....
