Jackson-Frazier is fine form. Baby red-winged blackbirds are abundant
and full of sass, green herons are flying and gronking, several mallard
are scattered along the boardwalk and today I saw two species I have not
encountered at J-F previously. A single bright male cinnamon teal came
out into open water near the channel side deck (near the beginning of the left fork going in). It was followed by a mallard female with six
young that are 90%
grown and I found this same brood a week ago in the same area but of course the
ducklings were somewhat smaller. The other new species for me was a
yellow-breasted chat out north of the north-most section of the boardwalk, caterwauling to beat the band.
