Steve Wilson/Raft Creek WMA 6/26/2010

I visited the Steve Wilson/Raft Creek WMA Saturday morning.  My target bird was Grasshopper Sparrow.  I heard two near the HQ.  I ventured further and saw a bunch of egrets and herons in an area downstream so I looped around and walked up on a berm and could see juvenile White Ibises on the other side.  They seemed to not be too concerned about me and let me get within about 75 feet before suddenly changing their minds.  There were also plenty Great Blue and Little Blue Herons, Snowy and Great Egrets.  Plus one Ring-necked Duck who appeared to have an injured wing.
