A number of people have commented to me that they are having difficulty finding Sedge Wrens, particularly in late May and June. I finally found some. Today, there were at least 4 calling Sedge Wrens at Nygren Wetland Preserve. They were in the prairie south of the barns and east of the gravel service road.
The main gate at Nygren will be open to the public on Saturday from 9:00-3:00 for Wildflower Weekend. You will be able to park by the barns and walk down the road (much closer than walking all of the way from the overlook parking lot). Plus, the wildflowers are really putting on a good show right now, so come out to Nygren and enjoy the wildflowers and birds on Saturday. Nygren will be open on Sunday during the same hours, but there will not be displays or programs.
There were also 6 White Pelicans in the marsh around 11:30 this morning. I heard that there have been up to 25 individuals there.
