I did, however, get the chance to explore the local sewage lagoon! I was hoping for some shorebirds but unfortunately the lagoons were flooded. The only birds of note around there were 6 male Wood Ducks molting into eclipse plumage, 1 male Green-winged Teal and a male Merlin.
Eastern-tailed Blue - probably my favourite butterfly species:
There were several White-faced Meadowhawks around:
Next weekend I hope to finally see my first southbound shorebirds for the year!
