I went out to Old Cedar Ave. bridge this morning at around 10:00am with my four-year-old daughter. It was a lot of fun as there were so many migrants flying through and gathering in the open water. The highlight was the American Bittern that was flying over the cattails to the NW of the new Old Cedar Ave. bridge. If looking towards Hwy. 77 from the bridge it landed to the left and close to shore. It is the first time I have found this species in the southern half of the state.
Other birds include: Northern Shrike- At the parking area. Apparently late enough to require comments on eBird.
