Went birding at Lake Elberta Park and Lake Henrietta Park this afternoon.
Fairly decent species counts at each place, but Lake Henrietta was the best.
There was a veritable invasion of Limpkins and a healthy flock of Rusty

Lake Elberta Park 12:30-1:35, 42 species total, Highlights:
Ring-necked Duck (32)
Hooded Merganser (26)
Ruddy Duck (51)
Bufflehead (8)
Lesser Scaup (1)
Lesser Yellowlegs (2)
Greater Yellowlegs (1)
Wood Stork (2)
Black-and-White Warbler (1)
Swamp Sparrow (5)

Lake Henrietta Park 1:45-4:05, 47 species, Highlights:
Canvasback (4, 2 drakes, 2 hens)
Lesser Scaup (17)
Greater Scaup (1 drake, associating with the Canvasbacks)
Limpkin (6+, 3 flying across and then landing on west side of the lake, 1
along a "creek" heading east from the second metal bridge, 2+ on both sides
of the slough south of the lake at the first culvert)
White-throated Sparrow (15)
Rusty Blackbird (27, This is the largest homogeneous flock of this species I
have ever seen. I usually find them mixed in with grackles. This flock was
found on along the slough south of the lake past the first culvert.)

Happy New Year,
