Bronzed Cowbird at Hague Dairy NOW

From: Rex Rowan <>
To: Alachua County birding report

John Hintermister just called at about 12:15 to tell me that there’s a Bronzed Cowbird at the Hague Dairy, one of fewer than ten records for the county.

I asked, “Where is it?” and then answered my own question, “With the other cowbirds, of course.”

But John said, “There’s only one other cowbird at the dairy.”

His other sightings out there included a flock of Bobolinks and a Sedge Wren that appeared to be in heavy molt. The lagoon has some good-looking mud flats in it, but no shorebirds yet.
