Retraced some of the route that the club took several weeks ago when I couldn’t go. Found all 3 species of swans, lots of White-fronted Geese, and, of course, thousands of ducks and geese. A surprise was the 1st winter Glaucous Gull at Lock and Dam 13. Lots of White Pelicans there, mostly on the Iowa side of the river. Ended at Lock and Dam 14, where the Harlequin Ducks were on the Iowa side. Thanks to Ann Straight for her excellent directions.

Barbara saw a Purple Finch at our feeder on Friday and it was calling Saturday from the woods.
