Despite the inclement at the time I left the house, I was hoping for a break in the rain as I made my way to Gilmore to pad my July 100 list this evening. I was hoping to add just a couple new birds for the month and with the news of breeding Great Egrets at Gilmore Ponds I naturally thought this place is so much more closer than the Oxbow, that I might as well give it a try.
So as of right now I stand at 78 birds with the addition tonight of
- Great Egret
- Willow Flycatcher
- Blue-winged Teal
Tomorrow I’m off to Spring Valley and Caesar Creek. Time is ticking and it’s the 18th already.
