Forsythe 7-25-07

Today was an impromptu trip out to Forsythe NWR. Even though the only "pink" we saw was the explosion of Marsh Mallows in bloom (we didn't get to see the Roseate Spoonbill) there were plenty of birds to see. A variety of shorebirds, mostly Semi-Palmated Sandpipers, Yellow Legs, Short-Billed Dowitchers, were on every mudflat. There were large groups of Glossy Ibis, 1 group ~ 100 est. Plenty of Terns, Egrets & Herons (including Blk-Crowned Night-Herons) all busy feeding in the shallow waters. Even a group of Diamondback terrapins were out sunning themselves. And of course the Greenheads were out in full force!
