Friday Evening after work I raced down to Eagle Marsh to see the reported Black Necked Stilts.Six of them on the south side of the main pond on the boy scout parking lot side. Before Fox Island this AM, I went by and did not pick them up from the parking lot, but heard later on that Four were on the East of the Towpath trail side.
Also of note, I still had a Red Breasted Nuthatch coming to my feeders yesterday.
