took a quick trip through anahuac and rollover/yacht basin

finally got some nice shots of purple gallinules and young ones
really disappointing no rails and i thought i wasn't going to see any bitterns but finally found 3 in a place i hadn't seen them before

yacht basin was more interesting
found a compliant clapper and just couldn't get to 2 more clappers squabbling

avocets, marbled godwits, long billed curlew, and a whimbrel

while on YBR what i thought was a seaside sparrow turned into a mystery bird
