Potential to attract something really good.
This area will probably dry up soon (as in a couple of days if windy and 
warm), so get there while the gettin' is good!!

Also, these fields are private property, so please be mindful of this.
Birds can be seen from the road at the duck club, pull off at the RR Tracks 
for the other field.
