I went through BKNWR this afternoon saw 50+ Black-necked Stilts, a couple of Long-billed Dowitchers, a few Snowy Egrets, 25+ Great Blue Herons, 25+ Little Blue Herons, 100+ Great Egrets, 25+ Pectrols, half dozen Least Sandpipers, a few Mississippi Kites, both Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs, 1 pied billed Grebe and 3 Spotted Sandpipers. The Juvenile White Ibis still remains on the backside of the refugee, about where the Eagle nest used to be. Also saw 10 juvenile Black-crowned Night Herons in the swamp.They are nesting again in that area after two or three years after the plane sprayed and killed all the vegetation in the swamp. I didn't know if the Black-crowned Night Herons would start nesting again in that area after the vegetation grew back.
