We birded Horseshoe Lake (south of St.Joseph on Pettit Road off 59 highway), Muskrat Lake (next lake to the west) and Mud Lake (larger lake to the southeast) thanks to excellent directions received from Larry Lade, and Lake Contrary, about 1-3pm.

Not much cooking at any of the four lakes, no shorebird activity at all except killdeer, no terns, etc.

However, there was a lone SANDHILL CRANE at Horseshoe Lake (far shore on the west end of the lake), as well as several 00's American White Pelicans, and several 00's Barn Swallows, and a single Snow Goose.  There was a Peregrine Falcon between Horseshoe Lake and Muskrat Lake, and a Loggerhead Shrike at Muskrat Lake.  Neither of the other two lakes yielded anything significant, unless you like duck decoys.
