7/26 - Sherman - Wimisink Marsh - Great Egret; 30-40 young wood ducks (impossible to count); A + 2 juvenile green herons, A + 1 juvie kingfisher, 2 great blue herons.
Re the American bitterns: sadly, no bitterns this year - "their" pond's water was too high due to the beavers raising their dam, although the south pond was normal. The reeds and grasses grew very high very early in the season so the baby bitterns' islands were obliterated and there was almost no open water. If they were in the marsh beyond the south pond, they were silent and invisible.
