    Comments: Appeared to be a family flying together - three Green Heron's flew out of KRGC trees and headed back toward their nest area. Probably one juvenile, at least, in this group. For the past week there have been lots of flights to their nest area, for likely food delivery before fledging. A fourth Green Heron was an earlier flyover from the Hawke's Pond area. Audio of calls back and forth during flight.

    Comments: possible Least Sandpipers; seen when there was a lot of Tree Swallow activity after sunset near a marsh pool. Possible this pool has a mud flat for shorebirds - I can't see the pool from any public standing point.
