The variety of ducks was minimal. I saw numerous Blue-winged Teals and Northern Shovelers as well as one Mottled Duck. There were several Coots throughout the area. I saw a few pairs of nesting Ospreys, but no other raptors. There were a few Roseate Spoonbills; I had a opportunity to observe one foraging right near the shore.
I saw several Great Blue, Tricolored, and Little Blue Herons as well as one Green Heron. I also saw 1 Great Egret, 2 Snowy Egrets, and 1 Reddish Egret. White Ibises, Boat-tailed Grackles, Mourning Doves, Savannah Sparrows, and a Pine Warbler sum up the day!
