Wed morning:

11 Wood Ducks. No male plumage; are males still in eclipse?
6 Great Blue Herons
1 Great Egret
1 Northern Harrier over the marsh
1 Nashville Warbler
1 Magnolia Warbler
White-throated Sparrows are back

This is the driest I've seen at the marsh in years. No water on the way in; you can walk through "The Puddle."
Great crop of Purple Loosestrife. It is no longer in bloom. There is some leaf curl from the relative dryness, but unfortunately no evidence of munching by Galarucella beetles.
