We also had a great view and took pics of a muskrat who swam under the bridge just as we got there, then crawled out the other side right below us! Really cool!
Red-Headed Woodpeckers (!) Our best day so far! We even saw two at the same time!
The woodpeckers sat on snags in the rear "drowned-log pond" near the metal bench. A couple of times they flew down onto the logs in the pond, but they were too far away to tell what they were doing - feeding presumably.
Wood Ducks (seemed like more than usual, but maybe they were hidden before)
Spotted Sandpipers (one by bridge, another by picnic pavilion)
Ring-Billed Gulls (only 6 - but more than last time)
Eastern Kingbird (or what w/o white tail tip?) (pic to be posted...)
Sparrow with spot on breast - is this a Savannah Sparrow with the notched tail and no obvious yellow, or a Song Sparrow, or what? On the beach by the picnic pavilion, we also saw:
Pectoral Sandpipers (2) (new !)
Least Sandpipers (2) (new !)
