August 18, 2015 - Brushline Road

 

One of three Groove-billed Anis calls nervously to his siblings across the road...

 

   

Casualty:  This foot-long snake had been run over, but I couldn't find a match - a young Indigo perhaps?  (We did see an adult later along the road...)

 

       

The primary target was a juvenile Short-billed Dowitcher (rather rare inland) that Dan Jones had found; juvie dowitchers are easily identified by the barred tertials (or the lack of barring in the case of Long-billed Dowitcher).

 

            

Just for kicks and grins we went to see if the Glossy Ibis was still around, and it was!  Breeding Glossies also have a thin white border around the face, but the actual face is gray, not pink, as would be the case with a breeding White-faced Ibis.
