The Sedge Wren was a highlight for me today. I was even able to get a diagnostic photo.

Other highlighs were: 250 Tree Swallow (about half at Lake Patrick and about half at Lake Paradise) FOS Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Yellow-rumped Warbler Eastern Meadowlarks Common Ground Dove Merlin (snatching pray on the wing) Blue-gray Gnatcatchers are always a highlight for me. Saw 6 today. 3 immature Bald Eagle flying together and jousting a bit
