Taking advantage of the cool weather I went back to the Eileen Pfeifer shelter area this morning.  Highlights included:


2 Common Gallinules, seen mating again

At least 18 Little Blue Herons

3-4 sets of Wood Ducks with young

2 Pied-billed Grebes


Full list with photos at




One of the Gallinule photos shows it running on the water with splashes behind it.
