Team Notes

Participants: Steve Brenner, Braxton Hinkel

Weather: Sunny, Calm, Seasonably Warm

Location: Times Beach Nature Preserve

Time At Location: 4 hours, 20 minutes

No real shockers species wise, but an excellent day to be out nonetheless!

It was a beautiful day at the preserve, but relatively quiet with birds. Some good sparrow activity near the jetty, as well as many DCCO flying out on the lake in the early morning. The highlight of the day was a Black-bellied Plover that flew past the jetty with a group of Killdeer early in the morning, calling as he went past.
