West Shore of Grand Isle
1 east-bound Jaeger species 8:00AM Monday 16 Sep.
1 Red-breasted Merganser 18 Sep.
1 Screech Owl and Barred Owl active in the daytime.
A Least Sandpiper, injured on or before September 6th,
seemed fully recovered by the 17th. and was gone on the 18th.
It had been lugging around a rabbit-foot-sized chunk of feathers
hanging from a tear on its neck. By the 17th, its flight was strong,
the feather clump was finally missing, the neck feathers
and the few remaining breast feathers were cleaner,
and it had two equally-tame companions.
