"One man's trash is another man's treasure" - I see a lot of
Indigo Buntings, Dicksissels, RW Blackbirds, Common
Yellowthroats, sparrows, etc. using those weeds and grasses
as perches, hear them singing, probably nesting, probably
eating seeds, etc.   It is all part of the habitat.

--OK...

I'm going to put my foot in my mouth... Others have said it,
I'm posting
it...

It seems curious that the "grasses" on the road sides and
the pool sides are
allowed to grow to heights that make viewing good shorebird
habitat all but
impossible. Even large birds such as herons are obscured by
the foliage. If
one owns a Helicopter... Hmmm....

Anyway, why the tall grasses...

I've looked these over and to me they seem "weedy"...

Prove me wrong.

Low numbers, low water, high vegetation.

In Dist. Channel--
2 or 3 Short-billed Dowitchers
1 Stilt Sandpiper
a few Pectoral Sandpipers
a few Least Sandpipers
a few Great Egrets
a few Great Blue Herons

2nd loop and extension:
4 imm. Lark Sparrows
a few Green Herons
a few Wood Ducks
1 Orchard Oriole male, near Perche Creek
plus usual suspects

earlier in the week both Tim James and I saw small groups of
Blue-winged
Teal--5 females--not seen today.
