At Charlotte Town Beach, 15+ cedar waxwings worked the cottonwoods ne xt to
the beach. Heading down towards Dead Creek it really began to pour. At the
Observation platform a kestrel hovered  for quite a while, being harassed by
a tree swallow who was then joined by 4 of his/her buddies. They dive bombed
the kestral who then dove into the grass,followed by the swallows. Quite a
"dogfight". Back behind the observation platform where diking or excavation
is underway many ducks worked the field. It was too far & too wet to clearly
see more than mallards & a couple of pintails, but there were some mystery
ducks as well, patterned almost like mergs, but who knows. On other side of
Rte. 17 was a beautiful f. harrier oblivious to downpour and a perching
osprey. An upland sandpiper on one of the dirt roads bordering the viewing
area and 3 more kestrals. But conditions were not conducive to seeing; turned
to head home-- and a double rainbow appeared, ending in the field behind the
viewing platform, giving the whole field a gorgeows glow. Nice afternoon
anyhow!!Nancy
