Treadway Minnow Farm 8/15/2009

Angie and I made another visit to Treadway Saturday.  The one drained pond is getting dry and unproductive, if they don’t drain anymore (and birds aren’t their business) there may not be much need to go there for a while.

However, I did get a first of year and even first in state Ruddy Turnstone.
