Started this morning before sunrise at Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. The near full Moon was setting and was a beautiful shade of Orange. I think the color was caused by all the smoke particulates in the air from the sugar cane burning.
I spent some time near the Marsh Trail parking lot where Smith and I saw a young Bobcat cross the road. The first impoundment had the usual assortment of waders and tons of Wilson Snipes. There was a couple of Lesser Yellowlegs and a Lesser Sandpiper. The Sandpiper was a new year bird.
I then rode the dike on the West side of the property and came up with this Swamp Sparrow. I only birded for a couple of hours but managed to squeak out 53 species. I added 2 birds to my year list. Thanks for the looks.
