Visit to Kenner wader roost
This evening I stopped by the wader roost in the Kenner City Park at Vintage and Loyola. There were 150 waders roosting, mainly White Ibis, but with smaller numbers of Great, Snowy, and Cattle Egrets, and Tricolored and Little Blue Herons. One Anhinga, and one Black-crowned Night-Heron.
I was mainly interested in whether spoonbills were roosting here- none tonight.
It was also curious that there were zero Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks. I don't imagine that will last much longer!
About ten American Coots were present- not sure how many might have been new wintering arrivals.
