These looked like ivory bill nest holes to me.
I have been landlocked for a while, horseytail....the weather has been exceedingly dreary and I have had a cold since last week but today I went out to the river in the afternoon after doing my episcopal duties... I don't remember such a long stretch of cloudy raining weather in these parts. Just as soon as I put in I saw this otter. The suwanee cooters were plentiful and the wintering- over crowd included cormorants, some woodpeckers I haven't identified yet and this black and white duck in addition to the usual gang of ibises, limpkins, egrets, and willetts.
I was looking for the ivory bill again today and now I have a song to sing about the ivory bill as well. I sang it while I paddled but it didn't attract any birds. Stephen B and I got together yesterday and recorded a version for the Will McLean Festival. Will was always writing songs about the flora and fauna of Florida and it fits the genre well, I think. Stephen is very creative and did most of the work but I think it is a good song and should place in the top ten at the contest. He also has a great swing song about the Suwannee which I think will place as well.
