Flew over in the second hour giving the distinctive "whink!" call notes. I visually saw all 5 birds together circling over the shack. I have silhouette photos if needed.

Flew over the waterbird shack in the second hour giving the distinct harsh and buzzy "brffft" call note. Heard 2-3 times at close range. I'm very familiar with this call note from Iowa as well as hearing it at WPBO several times before.

 

Are you submitting a complete checklist of the birds you were able to identify?
