It was hot and humid this evening, but a great time to be in the kayak. I put in at the Roberts Road boat launch at Pt. Mouillee and paddled almost ¾ of the shoreline to the Middle Causeway. The waters were calm, and it was wonderful to disappear into the cattail marsh. Highlights included a Least Bittern and Yellow-headed Blackbird. Common Gallinules and American Coot provided a few nice photos, as well as several Great Egrets up close.
