Driving east on Line Street, I glanced south toward the sewer ponds to see what I quickly counted as 40 good-sized dark birds flying low over the ponds. I drove south on Airport Rd. (dirt) to a point where I was adjacent the eastern-most ponds. Standing in the back of my pickup, I could look over the fence and dirt birm to see about 30 Ibis standing together near a drying puddle. Also present were hundreds of mixed Teal, Pintail, and Shovelers.
