I identified 76 species at EMCA (Eustis, FL) this morning between 0635 and
1235. The complete list with approximate counts is below.  Directions and info
on birding EMCA can be found at

The main roads through EMCA will be open tomorrow and Sunday morning before
dawn to allow access to duck hunters.  It's a war zone out there on hunting
days (Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday), so the chances of seeing the Whistling
Ducks and Canvasback this weekend are probably pretty slim.
