After settling down in the morning blind, the activity was slow with a group of mallards in the water in front of us, feeding. The two best birds at that we saw was a Solitary Sandpiper and a pair of Glossy Ibis. It was an enjoyable just watching the activity occurring in front of us.

We decided to go around to the afternoon blind to see if there was anything else occurring at that area. What surprised us, when we reached the blind, was the real low level of the water at that end of the pond. Bird activity was slow, except for a group of mallards, which were preening and did give a wing flap.

Walking back to the parking lot. We did come across a Cedar Waxwing and a Savannah Sparrow. Along the fence and Eastern chipmunk was going to with stand with his cheek pockets filled with seeds that it took from the bird feeders.

In total we identified 33 different species of birds, in the few hours that we were there at the sanctuary.
