Masked Duck and Harris Sparrow
- Yesterday Sat 1-31-09, Tracee, Marvin and me headed out of Tally.
At Paynes Prairie we quickly ran into some people had just seen the Harris.
We hang out and shortly the Harris joined a group of 7 white crowned
sparrows hanging out in one tree.
Also we saw
a kettle of over 100 sandhill cranes flying overhead and over 500 on the
r t hawk
r s hawk
b w teal
great views of american bitterns
Then we drove to Lake City and Aligator Lake. My directions were lacking and
we were having a hard time finding the park and it was getting late (after
3pm) luckily Andy W and Chris B came to the rescue and told us were to go
(to find the duck)
We got there I ran into old friends from Audubon, Loye and Barnie. Dean and
Sally and friends from Atl who I meet at a bird festival 2
We hauled butt to the hankerchief and started looking for the bird which we
found got to watch for about 15 min and then we had to haul butt back to the
parking lot so we could get out before the gate closed at 5:30pm.
