Lake Munson & Tram Rd
- Yesterday me and Tracee went to Lake Munson to see if we could see the
linpkin, but unfortunately we did not get to see them. But we did get to
see an osprey chasing off a juvenile bald eagle, 1 white pelican,
several great egrets, anhinga, ibis, coots, cormorants and we saw a
couple of sparrows in the grasses on the edge of the water and 3 N flickers.
The most disturbing thing we saw was a whole bunch of dead fish, the
smell was bad and there was still a couple of people fishing with these
piles of dead fish around the dam, uhgg. Does anyone know what is going
on there or if there anything we can do?
Then we went to Tram Rd I have been wanting to drive out in the fields
and I'm usually not able to go on Thurs. So I popped my head in and
asked about it and a very nice guy said that the gate wasn't open and
that management had just changed and they were still figuring everything
out, so we need to be extra courteous when we go so that the new
management likes us too or at least dosen't mind us. :)
Not a lot of birds but we saw
and some other ducks we couldn't id
yellowlegs (possibly lesser)
and there was this little bird feeding on the edge of the water in the
holding pond that we think might have been an american pipit. It was
bobbing it's tail and when it flew it had white on the edge of the tail,
I thought it was a meadowlark at 1st because of the tail but the more we
looked at it the more we weren't sure.
Also in the 2nd holding pond were several sparrows.
