Subject: Red Slough Bird Survey - July 3
It was mostly clear and very hot on the bird survey today. 66 species were
found. Biggest highlight today was finding a pair of King Rails with 2
black downy chicks. Always nice when King Rails show themselves and
especially when one gets to watch them for 10 minutes. Lots of gallinule
chicks out now and most nests in the heronry have young in them now. The
Neotropic Cormorants and Anhingas were very busy flying in and out of the
heronry feeding their young. Here is my list for today:
