Labird,My intenet service was out, just now restored.
Phillip Wallace and I birded Cameron yesterday, stayed east of the river. The day turned out hotter than expected, and birds were generally few, especially migrant landbirds. We did have a few birds of at least moderate interest. There was a single Groove-billed Ani along the East jetty Woods road, in the scrub along the fence line, after making the turn to the left over the cattle gap. There was an exceptionally dingy female Vermilion Flycatcher on the east fence at Willow Island. There were two Red Knots along Rutherford Beach, along with about six Lesser Black-backed Gulls, and a Sanderling eating a Common Green Darner (dragonfly). Bald Eagles are not particularly surprising, but we watched a single adult soaring over the tree line north of Rutherford Beach, as it eventually sailed out over the Gulf. Also, a Chuck-Will's-Widow, flew across the beach going north, apparently correcting after finding itself over the Gulf.
