Kentucky Birders,

Leaving Richmond, KY at 4:30 a.m. this morning was worth the long drive to 
Fernald Preserve, just west of Cincinnati.  By 6:45 a.m. I had good scope looks 
at the Garganey that has been hanging out with a group of Blue-winged Teal 
for the past couple of days.  After 15 or so minutes the group flew off to 
another pond and that was the last I got to see of them.  As the light was so 
low at that time of the morning, and with a threatening storm on the horizon, I 
was unable to obtain any usable pictures of the bird.

After the two hour drive home I later found out the bird returned about 20 
minutes after I left the pond about 8:30 a.m.  I  should have stayed an extra 
minutes for that picture.......
