Egan's Wetland, Fernandina Beach: one grasshopper sparrow and a female painted bunting this morning amongst the mob of savannah sparrows. No subsequent sightings of blue grosbeaks or the recent green herons. 

Question: Have any other Florida birders noticed conspicuously vacant Am. kestrel habitats? This species is beginning to echo the decline of No. harriers in our immediate region. Many roadside power lines and small fields are minus their usual complement of wintering kestrels this year. 

Patrick Leary, Fernandina Beach
