Northern Shovels, Coots, a Spotted Sandpiper, and one very large bird that flew across the top of the water by the shed. It was much larger than a Heron and then final rose above the trees and kept going higher and higher. My thought was a Frigatebird. I did get some distant pictures, but could not make a positive ID.
