Daily report – Saturday, 9/3

Hi! It’s late and the Dangle Tangle Class has arrived. Hope this can be short but there is some very nice news in it! Saturday was another sort of ploddy day at the nets with very modest numbers and no new species. Some nice news was the total of 9 night-herons of both species and a single Lark Sparrow that actually allowed good views. Being able to get all over the Island helped day’s list – nicely!! David, Ninfa, and Shelby actually wished for more hours in this day! I would guess our experience was similar to yours but I would bet that ours was more fun.

Sorry! I can’t find the pictures that I thought people had taken to go with this report. I’ve got too many for the 4th. though. Practice patience! Cheers, David
