The family of Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks at the south end of Ward Feed Yard to the SE of Larned were still present this evening, 25 August. I saw 2 adults and happily got a full count of 9 juveniles. The young birds are growing fast and have now developed the white wing patches typical of the adult plumage. I think they're still a week or two away from flight, but it might not be too long now.
A modest number of shorebirds were at this same pond with one Semipalmated Plover the rarest of those I could identify.
