96 degrees/partly cloudy/15 mph wind/evening

Luckily, it had cooled down from 106 degrees before I went out.  It was quiet at the lake due to the extreme heat of the day.  There were a couple of Northern Cardinals, but I was unable to get them to come out of the deep shade where they were.  There were no sign of Scissor-tailed Flycatchers or the Great-tailed Grackles.  There was a scant Red-winged Blackbird, but even during the feeding hours, birds were staying cool and out of sight.
