I have always loved stopping by the ponds whenever I've visited Bladensburg NP 
nearby - it used to be nice to see birds like Spotless and Baillon's Crakes an 
hour before looking at Spinifexbirds, Chestmut-breastred Quail-thrush, 
Rufous-crowned Emu-wrens, and Painted Finch...

now I fear that won't happen!!!
