Greg Askew and I spent some time at Brilyea Access in Addison today.  
Even with the rains of yesterday, very slowly but surely, the water 
level is decreasing and exposing more and more shorebird habitat.  Shore 
bird species remain small (only 5 observed), but the numbers of 
individuals seem to be increasing.

The Purple Martins were at the very end of the Brilyea west trail, just 
as they were in abundance last July and into August.  The Bald Eagles 
were all dark juveniles and at one point all clustered in the same tree.
