Birding in Calhoun County and beyond
I can't say I'm terribly surprised that the Plover finally left. It was noticeably "plumper" the last time I observed it, when compared to the first time. That along with the water level dropping at this location led to it seeming to be much quieter there today overall. Hopefully some rain tomorrow may bring some more birds in that are on their way South.
I was able to meet Curt Hofer and Scott Jennex today, and put some faces to names. A few other disappointed birders were there also, that unfortunately didn't get what we were all hoping to see.
Tomorrow is a new day...cannot wait to see what it brings.
This little flooded cow pasture has been pretty amazing for 3 weeks now. I'm working on a comprehensive list of the birds seen here, and individuals that have shown up to check it out. The American Golden-Plover continues still, and is visibly plumping up for its long migration to South America.
My exploits in my latest passion, Birding...not Bird-watching;-)
