Hi all,

Made a stop at the "Southeast Farm", aka Tram Road STF ("An Award-Winning
Reclaimed Water Project!"), in Tallahassee this morning, looking for ducks.
Lots of cormorants, but not one steenkin' duck!

The day was not all lost, however, as there were a few good birds about:
first a Cliff Swallow (County bird #89) in amongst a flock of Barns, two
spotted sandpipers, two kestrels flew by, and then a flock of at least 8
Pectoral Sandpipers swooped in!

A quick stop at the Leon County Landfill yielded a Bald Eagle, but there was
nobody at the "main office", so, not knowing if birders are welcome, we
left. Does anyone know if  this is a "birder-friendly" site?
