Subject: [obol] Ankney, Aug. 22
Shorebirds, ducks and shy herons: 2, or maybe 3, bittern; 2 Green Heron
in eclipse plumage:pintails, cinnamon teal, eussy, ring-necked, hooded
merganser, shoevler
Shorebirds: Least Sandpiper, snipe, Killdeer of course, LB Dow; both
yellowlegs
Many swallows aloft
Many zebra-marked young PB Grebes)--they are known to often have two
clutches per season and judging from all the visible small fry (fish) in
the pools at Ankney more young made sense in view of obvious food supply
this year
Few birders or other mammals (only one visible nutria and one mink.
