Yesterday evening, I had barely walked onto the long driveway which leads from V.F.W. Parkway to the former school when I decided to peer into the marsh with my binoculars. Immediately, I had five Wilson's Snipe feeding in the mud close to the driveway. As this was a year bird, I was happy. As I was focused on that one spot, another year bird appeared in my view-Pied-billed Grebe!
