Got to the "pits" before the rain today, lots of water now backed up into  
the weeds. I was able to find and photograph 12 adult and the 6 young all in 
the  same area scattered throughout the vegetation but all visible with one 
 sweep of the scope!!  I would have thought there might have been some more 
 young but maybe these are adults flooded out of nesting sites by the  rain 
flooding once dry areas or first year birds that just didn't make the  
grade. Six of the adults seemed to be paired. Still more time to find some more 
young but at least we still have the six.  
Good Birding  !!!
