The morning was foggy, but the birds were there. Anhingas were the main attraction. They were everywhere8 Flying, swimming, 'aad sitting about with their wings spread to dry after their breakfast. There were flocks of Mottled Dueks and Blue-winged Teal along with. the waSiJrs. There were only a few ahorefejjedsjpresent, but some of them JffW rather puakling for everyone as their plumages didn't quite _^,len'anyof Peterson's plates. Ho doubt they were either immature or changing from Spring to Pall dress. Always, impressive, the Spoonbills were sweoping the shallows with their namesakes. Shree rather ragged looking White Ibis flew aver and a. Great Blue Heron kept flying back and forth as if adding us all to his lifslist of birdwatchers. While we were pionicing, a Blue Jay began aiaklng a. awful ruckus. Dr. Craig informed us that it was no Blue Jay making that noise, but a Red-shouldered Hawk and,sure enough he flew over screaming for all to see. ".' >//": Altogether fifty-four birds were recorded and Dr. Marrack's children found a slightly beat up^cow stall, so the day was a great success for everyone.

'f"x']k<': They also fly about diving at intruders with those long, sharp beaks aimed menacing. It looks like a murderous charge, but the birds veer off just in time, so: that one's chance of being actually struck Vv them is slight.
