Dottie and I started on north Meridian Rd where we saw various ducks and a few sandhill cranes. First for us this year were Green-Winged and Blue-Winged Teal. At Rock Cut we saw most of the already sighted ducks and we saw our first Common Loon for the year. For the second time this spring we have seen an immature Bald Eagle from the Lyon’s Club dock. At Lake Sule in Rochelle among the many ducks there, we saw another Loon and 2 dozen Ruddy ducks. More firsts for this year were Redhead and Canvasback ducks and Red-Breasted Merganser.
Today, Sunday, at Blackhawk Springs we got really good looks at Golden-crowned Kinglets and Yellow-bellied sapsuckers.
