Tonight I made another dusk visit to the roost at the water treatment plant on Monticello.
There were ~780 large waders roosting, all white species (White Ibis, Great, Snowy, and Cattle Egrets). Hundreds of Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks flying about, hundreds of Laughing Gulls roosting, as usual.
Wood Ducks continue to fly in at dusk; tonight's count was 48. Every time I arrive, they are already coming in- so I don't know how many arrived before hand. They typically disappear into the wet thickets so it is not feasible to count them after arrival.
