Conway, Arkansas — Sturgis Road

I spent about an hour birding by the bridge on Sturgis Road.  The creek had overflowed and flooded the surrounding cow pastures, making an acres-wide puddle. I didn’t see many birds while I was there but I did see two Great Egrets.  They were flying over the field about 40 feet over the water and continued in a straight line until they disappeared.
