Are you at the corner of Rolston and E. Warren?? If so, we have seen
an AB fly from your pond when your fountain comes on...it flew East
into the field. I believe it or another flew northwest a little later
the same evening last week.I have also heard an Am Bittern while
walking the road in the early evening...truly an amazing and unique
vocal. Are you still being visited by the Common Snipe or Kildeer?
We are currently renting a condo at Madbush, on Rolston near 100.
