I got to see the Yellow-throated Warbler today raising my warbler total for this new year to nine species.
Afterwards I drove down to the muddy flood channel south of Estero and tromped around trying to flush the Short-eared Owl without any success. Most of the gates are locked so I had to drive in from Mercedes. I'll try again in a few days. I did get a Sprague's Pipit at the usual spot on the levee so it was a worthwhile trip.
