Subject: Red Slough Bird Survey - July 19


Chris Lynch (OK) and I surveyed birds today and found 44 species. It was
partly cloudy and hot, with a light wind. Very little singing today. Rock
trucks were running in and out of the reservoirs re-rocking the graveled
levee road which affected my survey some. Best highlight were the
continuing Limpkins of which we found 3 today. A few shorebirds are
starting to show up. Here is our list for today:
