It was at this time that I ran into Charles Owens. He had just photographed a pair of Virginia Rails, but they refused to show again.
We would make a couple more passes around the boardwalk, but would fail to see anything other than Palm Warblers, Myrtle Warblers, and Common Grackles. No thrushes, and only a couple of White-throated Sparrows.
We took a few photos from distance before moving on.
It was great seeing Charles, and running into old/new friends Cherise Charron, Sherrie Duris, and her friend Ryan.
