Subject: Red Slough Bird Survey - May 3
It was cool, overcast, rainy, and windy on the survey today. 98 species
were found. I was joined a couple hours into the survey by Dan Doughty
(AR.). Inspite of the rain, not much in the way of fallout warblers. There
was a Yellow-headed Blackbird just outside my count area at the feedlot at
