Did a run through the wetlands area and click ponds just before and during
the afternoon rain. Some of the noteable sightings:
10+ American Coots
1 Spotted Sandpiper
2 Least Bitterns
3 Black-bellied Whistling Ducks (flying in from the pasture)
10 Wood Ducks (9 in northwest corner of cell 1, 1 in southwest corner of
40+ Blue-winged Teal
4 Belted Kingfishers
Observed 1 Black Tern skimming the south click pond and a Red-shouldered
Hawk patroling the field north of the click ponds.
A few Sandhill Cranes in the sod fields west of the ponds and 1 Killdeer.
P.S. For anyone interested, I recently updated the New Stuff gallery on my
website with images from a recent vacation as well as always loading recent
See you out there!
