Due to the continued closure of Shark Valley and most of Loop Road, I've made a few adjustments to the itinerary for tomorrow's TAS field trip to that area. We'll still meet at 8:00am at the abandoned airboat concession on Tamiami Trail, one mile west of the Shark Valley entrance, but stops will now include Forty Mile Bend, Oasis Visitor Center and Kirby Storter Boardwalk. Early risers may want to consider a pre-trip stop at the S-334 Water Control Structure on Tamiami Trail (about 1.3 miles west of Krome Avenue), where a Tropical Kingbird continues (I saw it this morning). A pair of very feisty Purple Gallinules were also present. I'll be at the kingbird spot tomorrow morning at about 7:00am; all are welcome to join me.
