There were 19 Pied-billed Grebes on Pierce Lake at Rock Cut SP today! Other species of note were 2 Horned Grebes from the Lion’s Club fishing pier, a few Bufflehead, several dozen Lesser Scaup, and some Ruddy Ducks.

Many Golden-crowned Kinglets were vocal. I counted 36 seen, but there were certainly more. 5 Sapsuckers were along the trail immediately below the dam. 4 Yellow-rumped Warblers were also below the dam, plus 2 Winter Wrens (1 was singing).

Heard my first Field Sparrow of the year at the Olson Lake annex.
