An astronomer friend encouraged me to look for Mars in daylight today (yesterday he saw it in the late afternoon with 8x bins because it was near the Moon and easy to locate). Today it was further away and more difficult and I couldn't find it. 

But I did see 20 or so White Ibises flying very high, invisible to the naked eye. Could see which direction they were flying, but interesting.
