Once again, Sandy Point and Kent Narrows were disappointing. No color at all, all the way to the horizon.
The entrance road to CBEC was almost completely flooded, but it wasn’t very deep, so I got in OK.
Many (60) Egrets and Herons were foraging all over the lake, and the Tricolored Herons were easy to find. These are fairly small birds, and they blend with the shoreline.
Terns, Eagles and Ospreys were also active and made for a good morning.

Many Egrets were feeding near shore.
Forster’s Terns were fishing in the East end of Lake Knapp.
I’m not seeing as many Great Blue Herons as usual.
This Great Crested Flycatcher will be heading South soon.
It appears that about 25-30 Canada Geese spend the night at CBEC, then go foraging in the early morning.
The BCEC admin tells me there’s as many as 100 Wild Turkeys on the grounds.
I finally got a good luck at the Tricolored Herons. These are juvenile birds.
This young fawn seems to hang out in this area, as I’ve seen him there several times.
