my bike down to Wetland Units #1 and #4 near McBaine. I don't recall any

of MKT is closed, but you are diverted up onto the Wetland #4 for
I did hear a distant
Moorhen in Wetland #4, but it was never visible. Thought I heard one
just doing the single clucking note in Wetland #1, again not visible.
Virginia Rails were calling in several locations at both Units, and heard a Sora
at #4. Marsh Wrens calling in several locations also. A Great Horned
Owl called relatively close near the entrance to #4, coming from #1.
