Today I took the day off from work and birded Hernando county. First stop was Bayport park at 7:00AM. I was surprised to find two winter birds still here: Common Loon and 3 Horned Grebe in partial breeding plumage. I heard a rail, which sounded to me like a king rail instead of the much more common clapper rail (neither of which I have seen in Florida yet). Couldn't find him though!
