Greene Co. (Western)



A trip this afternoon around W. Greene county produced 39 species.  The Juacime 
Bible WMA is closed until March, but driving around the edges produced a nice 
covey of 11 N.Bobwhite feeding in a neighboring yard.  They were only 20 yards 
from heavy cover but let me drive slowly past them without spooking them.  The 
Red-shouldered hawk was perched low in a wet scrub area, classic frog hunting 
situation.  I had some nice back-lighting from the late afternoon sun as the 
ducks came in to roost and picked out 5 Black Ducks along with a male 
Green-winged teal....among many many mallards.  I heard many more ducks on in 
the refuge but I have to wait a couple of more weeks to get closer.


Keep on brdn,
