I birded here from 1:30-3:45. I was hoping the tide was going to be
astronomically high, which it was. Thus, all the birds were forced out
onto the berm area .Everything else was submerged. WOW!

Great Blue Heron 2
Great Egret 1
Green-winged Teal 2
Hooded Merganser 1
Red-tailed Hawk 1
Cooper's Hawk 1
accipiter sp. 1
AMERICAN KESTREL 1 ad. male
Yellow-rumped Warbler 11
NELSON'S SPARROW 9   including two interior
Ammodramus sp. 2
Savannah Sparrow 4
Swamp Sparrow 1

P.S. Later on, seen from Belle Isle Cemetery feeding on the inlet:

Semipalmated Plover 4
peep sp. 1
Greater Yellowlegs 9
Dunlin 1
