Subject: Bald Knob NWR -- Recent Sightings
There have been several interesting reports from the refuge this past week including:Black-bellied Whistling DuckAnhingaWhite Ibis (juveniles)Tricolored Heron (last seen a week ago)Black-crowned Night-heronSemipalmated PloverAmerican Golden PloverRuddy TurnstoneUpland SandpiperSemipalmated SandpiperWestern SandpiperLaughing Gull (juvenile)Black TernLeast TernMost have been seen along the gravel road that runs on the north end of the ponds/cells off Coal Chute and parallels Huntsman Rd. The Anhinga and Night-herons were seen at Birch Pond which is on the road just before the low water bridge that runs south off Huntsman Rd. Continue on this road for about a mile to the first side road, which is currently very muddy. If you have on boots, you could walk this muddy road to an opening on the left (maybe 100 yds up). Migration is definitely underway and this refuge should be appealing to birds and birders with numbers of both picking up over the upcoming weeks/months. Patty McLean and Michael Linz The Roadrunners of White and Faulkner Counties
