[birdky] RPT: Logan County KY 739 Transient Pond

05 July 2011:
 

A brief visit to the KY 739 Transient Pond in Logan County this morning
yielded the following birds.

 


5-Jul-2011

KY-Logan

KY 739 Transient Pond


Mallard

~70

Including several broods of ducklings of various ages


Wood Duck

2

At least 2 Wood Duck juveniles were present in the mess of Mallards


Ring-billed Duck

2

apparent pair


Black-necked Stilt

2

        

Killdeer

~30

estimate, uncounted


Least Sandpiper

1

        

 

It should be noted that the water is falling fairly rapidly now and that the
pond will not be with us too much longer.  Also note that I accidentally
flushed about 40 of the Mallards present.  I expect they will return, but
cannot be certain.

 

Highlights were the continued presence of the Black-necked Stilts and the
apparent pair of Ring-billed Duck along with the Least Sandpiper.

 

That concludes this report.
