The fact of moving the field trip to Circle B to yesterday was fortuitous. "And The Rains Came" this morning. The skies opened up and poured down the wrath of the gods that be. Yesterday on the other had was beautiful. Eight of us began the trek at 9 AM. Stopping along the marsh. Two Purple Gallinules were spotted along with a calling Sora. We spotted a Limpkin, then another, then another,-- and another--- and----- and -----so on. There were so many Limpkins about that it seemed there wasn't room in the vast expanse for anything else. The presence of Limpkins means that the health of the habitat and availability of snails ranks up in the A-1 category. There were disappointingly very few ducks. Only 3 species. Blue-Gray Gnatcatchers were abundant as were the Common Yellowthroats. Wood Storks, White & Glossy Ibis,3 species of Egrets,and 4 Heron species. were seen with many numbers of each. The Great Blue Herons were busy building nests and provided some good photo ops. We had a total of 60 species for the day. The complete list can be seen at this eBird link.
