stars today were the Lesser Sandhill Cranes, hanging out in a field with the egrets.

Water levels were quite low, some ditches were dry, others were green scummy, but the ducks didn't mind.

Ditches had a lot of (I think) adolescents, chillin in the protected water till they get a little stronger.Only thing there was a lot of was Snowy Egrets, tons of those dudes, and some Blue Herons.
