The park gate was opened by 6:10am, so I explored the rest of the park, including walked to several other similar golf course Phragmites-lined ponds (before the course opened). Still no luck. If the CUSA is still in the area, I would suggest checking Milford Point (and marsh), and McKinney Refuge “Warehouse” Pond.

The water level in the pond is higher than yesterday, from the rain, but still good foraging habitat. The park gate is still locked. We’ll keep looking.
