5926Connected Lakes this morning

The weather at 0630 hrs was nice – 64F, calm, slightly cloudy - so I went looking for Cece’s Eastern Kingbirds and found three at the location where she had found them recently. Thank you, Cece! =)
Other goodies this morning:
An adult Bald Eagle was a first for the area in July in my 12+ years of looking in the area
A singing House Wren was another first for July, again 12+ years of looking
An adult male Lark Bunting was new to my list for the area, and I have 500+ observation-days recorded over the years
13 Black-capped chickadees is a new high count for July
Bewick’s Wren appears to be making a comeback, finally! This is following their annihilation by West Nile or whatever else has happened to them?
Three adult Green Herons and possibly begging young? I was hearing loud raucous calls I have never heard before, anywhere. The adults were quite agitated while I was in the area. I am searching the internet, so far in vain, for examples of begging GRHE. McCauley Sound Library is not accessible for some reason; maybe that site has moved? Any other suggestions for online recordings I can listen to - for free?
