I got out of the house late on Sunday to bird and see effects of the rain. Here are a few pictures of all the debris that needs clearing. It's located near the end of Saddlebrook Trail. (The picture below is a link to a set of pictures on Flickr.)
Even in the early afternoon the birding was good! I found 38 species, including interesting migrants like Baltimore and Orchard Orioles, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Bell's Vireo, and Yellow Warbler. On the creek I estimated there were 40 Snowy Egrets. All those white birds made an impressive sight. And I was excited to see the first migrant sparrow I've seen this fall, a single Clay-colored Sparrow just downstream of the T&C playing fields. Here is another Flickr set of pictures I got, starting with a Pied-billed Grebe that was in the Parmer Village drainage pond.
