Subject: [wisb] Re: White-faced Ibis at Horicon NWR in Dodge County
After finding the Avocets yesterday at about 12:30 pm . We made a return
trip last night so my wife could see them. At that point I made a full scan
of the cattail treatment area. I counted 22 Black neck stilts and one
flying high in the air calling.
