This morning I visited the City of Columbia waste treatment units #1 
and #4 northeast of McBaine which I hadn't been able to get to 
earlier this summer, looking for marsh birds.

Virginia Rail -  2 responded to  played tapes in the northernmost 
cell of unit #4.

Sora -  one responded to tape in the southernmost cell of unit #4. 
Sora and Virginia Rails were  each found in the same cells last year.

Common Moorhen -  Moorhens were heard at both units #1 and #4. No 
young birds were seen.

American Coot -  At least 2 were heard and one seen at the 
southernmost cell of unit #4. No young birds were seen.

Great-tailed Grackle -  3 were seen and heard at unit #4.

Other than Killdeer, no shorebirds were found. None of the cells has 
exposed flats.
