Bona Dea was cloudy and cold today. On the way by the sanctuary, I saw an unusual sight. There were 3 Double Crested Cormorants sitting on a piece of a old tree in Lake Dardanelle right across the dike from the park. See photos. Also a close up of a single bird. Bird descriptions shows this bird not known in this area at any time. But this year I have seen a single one on Waldon Pond at Bona Dea and then more than once in this location on Lake Dardanelle. The Turkey Vulchers were flying around and on their usual roosting spot. See photo of them in the trees. Ducks of various types were flying in to their night spot in Black Water Swamp. Unusual not to see a Great Blue Heron at the places I visited today.
