Rode up with Karen, Doris, and Dottie as part of an exploratory party for the ASCA field trip next week. Arrived about 8:15 AM and checked the ponds on Coal Chute Road. Later we travelled another road that may have no name for Black-crowned Night-herons and otters which had been seen there before though not were seen today. Lefet at about 1:15 PM.
