Late this evening we stopped at the Base Lake and found 2 Red-breasted Mergansers.
At La Platte Bottoms on the north side of La Platte Road we found an immature Common Gallinule. It was briefly in the open, and then it went into the vegetation where it became barely visible. In the same area there was a Sora and some Coots. On the south side of La Platte Road there were 25 Great Egrets apparently in a roost about 50 yards south of the road.
