birds today...at first we had a big group of Great Egrets...then one Wood Stork 
flew around us at the wetlands...and then it was joined by a second...

We went out chasing dragonflies and then I had a Great-crested flycatcher 
vocalize close to me...then a second...back on the game fence...this is the 
first vocal I have heard from this species... that makes all three myiarchus 
this week...
