No idea what these are, but I wouldn't be surprised if they are weeds. In any case, they are growing in a very flooded area of Tom Sawyer Park. They have all the water they need, so they're just waiting for the sun.
Not a common bird in the Louisville area unless you happen to be at the Louisville Zoo.
