Midlands unexpecteds

Found a couple of male Lesser Scaup in Lake Marion and an immature American
Bittern in an impoundment, both near Rimini, S. C., in a couple of hours
early this morning.  Also saw six Yellow-crowned Night-Herons
in the same impoundment area, two of which were immature--had seen one
Yellow-crown there a month ago.

I don't know how uncommon these two are in late June in this area--they were
a surprise to me.
