St Marks NWR: Yesterday Morning
- It happened again. I got confused on my way to work and ended up at St Marks. Fortunately, I had scope and binoculars with me.
Mounds Pool III
White Pelican (flock of forty sitting on mudflats)
Greater Scaup (around ten, only one male)
Fire Tower Pond
all the herons and egrets (Great & Little Blue, Tricolored, Green, Great, Snowy)
Summer mornings at the refuge are great and once the morning mosquitos die down it's not too buggy. There are Marsh Wrens singing along the dikes, herons flying everywhere and the occasional "guurkk" cry of baby gators from the marshes.
