Subject: Red Slough Bird Survey - May 11
It was mostly clear, warm, and very windy on the bird survey today. 79
species were found. Very few migrants seen today. Looks like we are going
to have a heron rookery this year on Pintail Lake. The Anhinga/Neotropic
Cormorant rookery that has been on Pintail Lake the past few years has been
joined by about 300 Cattle Egrets and a few Great Egrets that appear to be
going into nesting mode. Other species will probably join the rookery as
well so I will be watching it closely. Here is my list for today:
