The same birds were at TGP shortly after noon.  I hadn't seen a Brown
Thrasher yet this year and I counted six in one spot.   I was overwhelmed at
REDA at the vast number of White Pelicans and also Double-crested
Cormorants.  I made a conservative count of 350 pelicans and 400 cormorants.
The confluence road was barren--almost no mud flats.
