Paul Egeland, Esther Gesick and I spent the weekend in Yellow Medicine, Lac Qui
Parle and part of Chippewa county. Some highlights:
Spotted Towhee located in the eastern half of the Lac Qui Parle county park on
Saturday. This park also held many of the usual sparrows, kinglets and late
A single Snow Goose and Red-necked Phalarope at the Dawson sewage ponds.
Four species of geese including 39 White-fronted, two Ross's and a handful of
Cackling at the Clarkfield sewage ponds.
Miedd Lake in Yellow Medicine county was still hosting shorebirds including
both Yellowlegs, Dunlin and Dowitchers (too distant and silent to make a
positive I.d, but probably Long-billed) along with several hundred ducks,
mostly Green-winged Teal.
