I did not find the Whimbrel reported by Jay Walko and David Hilgeman at Ensley
yesterday afternoon. When I arrived at 8:00 I saw Dick Preston as he was
leaving, and he told me he, Rob Harbin, and Bob Foerhing had all been there
looking without refinding it.
Admittedly I didn’t look very long, about 30 minutes, spending a lot of that
time trying to get to a good place to look at the big pit, Big Stinky; it’s
been a long time since I have been there, and equipment blocks the north-south
roads next to that first big pit. You can’t drive the levee going east-west
between the middle lagoons either, as I found out when I drove about half way
across before I encountered a big sunken section and had to back out.
I enjoyed seeing one Black-bellied Whistling Duck with three youngsters in tow.
Overall I saw nothing unexpected.
