I visited Wappapelo, Otter Slough, Mingo and Duck Creek today.  Saw 11 species of ducks.  Thousands of Snow Geese, also many hundreds of Greater White-fronts.  In one "gaggle" on the ground there were Snow Geese, Ross' Goose, Canada Geese, Greater White-fronts and (I think) some Cackling...possibly five species in one bunch.  Other birds of note included Loggerhead Shrike, House Wren (Mingo), Eastern Phoebe (Mingo), Field Sparrow (Otter Slough) and Eurasian Collared Dove (Dudley).  Hundreds of Brown-headed Cowbirds along Highway W just south of Dudley.  Meadowlarks, Kingfishers, Mocking Birds, Bald Eagles tending nests at Duck Creek.  Duck season is over but many areas are still closed for benefit of goose hunters.
Good birding,  Bob Lewis  [log in to unmask]
