Comments:
My apologies to the Featherfest group I was helping with as they witnessed the culmination of a couple of days of South winds. As slow as the woods gets during the morning, most of the birds I saw were before 7:15 AM or just before I left when we had a few drop-ins that were new for the day.

Just before sunup, while waiting for group I was to lead. Heard growl call several times from marsh just across road from woods entrance. The tiny, black butterball then made a short, weak flight of about 20 feet in response to call playback. In subsequent days, more were noted from adjacent areas.
