A monthly survey of the waterfowl and related wetland species today,
(08/11/03), revealed: great blue heron (7), Canada goose (35), mallard (9), black duck
(8), wood duck (41), belted kingfisher (1). Observation/differentation was
made difficult due to the extensive mat of water lilies! Songbirds of
interest, a blue-gray gnatcatcher and a black-and-white warbler (m), tree swallows
gathering on the powerlines. Butterflies, a single white admiral.
