After spending some time, yesterday, gawking at the 35 Ibis (most likely White-faced, but who can be 100% sure, what with the distance and the pos9litional disadvantage relative to the sun, I couldn't make out the red eyes), I spent some time gawking at the dozens, if not hundreds of tiny blue damselflies. I then decided to brave the traffic, and and set out for University Farms in Fayetteville, to see the Night-Herons. It took me a while to locate one, as it had migrated to the south side of the pond. I never saw the other two that had been reported earlier in the week, but they may have been hiding in the dark tangle of tree roots near the one I saw. One other item of note, there were three Sedge Wrens, one in the brush along the pond, and at least two more in the crop to the north.
It's an interesting spot, but I would not visit again in shorts and running shoes.
