With Sid England. Walked the trail through the refuge. We were specifically searching for the Masked Duck reported from the site for several weeks prior to our visit.
Temperature: ~80F; Wind: 10-20 mph; Cloud cover: 90%. Habitat: dense subtropical woodland with native sabal palms, resaca, and adjacent old field.

  2. Number observed: 1

    Details: A single female on the resaca just where it had been reported for several weeks previously. Had extended looks from as close as 25'. Part of the time the bird sat quietly in the short vegetation. Later it moved out into shallow open water and was standing while preening.
