Fulvous Whistling-Duck, St. Marks
- On a walk around Stony Bayou Pool No. 2 at St. Marks Feb. 2 we (Jaye
and David Houe, Emily DuVal) found a single Fulvous
Whistling-Duck. It was located in an area of emergent grassy
vegetation visible from the southern dike just to the east of the
open water in the southeastern corner of the pool. It was found with
a flock of around 100 Mallards, plus 15 Black Ducks.
We also saw the Vermilion Flycatcher along the southern edge of the
same pool. A Seaside Sparrow feeding with Savannah Sparrows on the
dike was a bit out of place.
