August 3 - 6:30 p.m.

I went to Mossy Creek this afternoon, August 3rd, looking for the immature
White Ibis found by Michael and Leslie Sledjeski on Saturday.  I found a
couple of Great Egrets and the Little Blue Heron, and when I had about
decided that the ibis had moved on, I spotted it sitting in the top of one
of the small dead trees in the vicinity. As I watched, the bird flew down
and joined the Little Blue who was busily searching for dinner. They were
still feeding when I left at 7:15.

A single Great Blue Heron flew over and a kingfisher made several trips over
the water. Since I had only a short time to stay, I did not make a list of
the other usual birds to be found at the site.
