What a great day to bird. Twenty-one avid birders joined forces to find the birds. We had two Ontario visitors who enjoyed along with the rest. We had birds!! Swamp, Savannah, & Chipping Sparrows, Wood Storks, Northern Harrier, Tricolored, Green, Little Blue, & Great Blue Herons, Cattle, Snowy, & Great Egrets, Purple Gallinule, 6 Wilson's Snipe, & Sora to name a few. This group shot filming the Sora was taken by Tom Gulley.
This American Bittern gave us quite a show, first by flying in just across from where we stood. He at first had the neck extended and then drew downward and just seemed to stare at us. Did I say we had birds? Why yes, yes we did. The check list of 55 species can be seen at this eBird link.
