Scissor-tailed! + Egrets et. al. + King Eider Still Around

[After cycling past two large egret and heron concentrations on Nummy Island this morning, I stopped for a quick photo of this one along the Stone Harbor Causeway. 175+ Snowy Egrets, Great Egrets, Glossy Ibis, and a couple of the scarcer herons were in this group. Herons often concentrate like this around fish trapped in high tide pools.]

Sam Galick found a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher at the Higbee Dike this morning, which was seen by a number of other observers before it took off headed southwest and high - magnesite plant? Across the bay? Who knows.

I keep forgetting to mention that the immature male King Eider is still around, lately being seen on or near the Concrete Ship.
