Location: Melton Pond Overlook - Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge

High water in Melton Pond resulted in few wading species. Sparrows had already begun migration south and were not abundant or sighted from circle. Northern Harrier put on quite a show in the afternoon, returning twice to "harry" the pond.
The participant who had traveled the farthest to reach our sit came from Carrollton, Georgia.
