ENV: Kerr County fauna, early April 2005

I made a trip to the Kerr WMA yesterday (actually just down the road from me) to do some filming. Was not really in search of specific critters. Most of my filming was at a small, half-dry pond, and a number of critters were coming to mud there. Not many odes. Birds and leps were decent. The list below is complete for Kerr WMA on the 10th. I’ve also appended some other few things from recent dates that may be of interest. Listed posted to TexBirds, TexButterflies and TexOdes listservs.
