> Yesterday afternoon I saw an adult BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON fly up from near the trail as I walked around the marsh from the overlook along wintel Road. I was a little north of the new Purple Martin nest boxes, the Night-Heron flew up from behind willows east of me, flew a big circle or two around the area, then disappeared behind willows and then I think landed in the same area that it took off from. This was my first Marion County BCNH. Saw several pairs of BLUE-WINGED TEAL and a pair of CINNAMON TEAL with a brood of 7. Only TREE SWALLOWS are using the Purple Martin nest boxes.
