A Great Egret was close by. A Snowy Egret would have been more desirable, but you take what comes.
The trail can be good for migrants at times. The only warbler I saw was a Black-and-white, too high in a tree to photograph.
I also checked out St. Clair NWA.
Arriving back home, I decided to walk around Peers Wetland. There is a good variety of butterflies around right now, including lots of Peck's Skippers. I even have them in the yard right now.

I came across the Common Checkered-Skipper in the same spot, assuming it is the same individual I saw Tuesday.
Also, a Common Sootywing. They must be doing well this year since I have seen them in several locations.
This afternoon I took a walk at Reid CA. A single Dukes' Skipper still remains, making a brief appearance. It did not stop!
Lots of Tawny-edged Skippers are out and about now as well.
