There were far fewer birds around at St. Marks than the past two
weekends, though no trip is ever a bust.  Lighthouse Pool,
Headquarters Pond and Tower Pond were all void of birds.

Plus two Black Terns at Picnic Pond and two Eastern Kingbirds.  A
Black Vulture was in the refuge; I usually only see them just inland
along US 98.  Finally 4 European Starlings and 2 Eurasian
Collared-Doves were near the Lighthouse.
