I drove a quick tour of EB this morning hoping to see a Little Blue Heron.But 
no such luck.  I saw only 4 Great Egrets,in pool 10, many Great Blues, and no 
other wading birds.

The water is quite high.  Probably 75% of the farmers' corn crop is under 
water. I  am sure the high water has wiped out lots of nests in that land not 
under cultivation.

Black birds are beginning to gather.

Did see a Kingfisher and one regal Eagle.
