Seen with Jim Malone at Little Creve Couer Lake between 9 and 10:30 a.m. Saturday:

2 Clay-colored sparrows
1 Lincoln sparrow
Several Swamp sparrows
1 White-throat sparrow
1 Yellowthroat 
1 Nashville 
1 Cooper's Hawk
1 Sharp-shinned Hawk
All of the above all seen on the path. 
The sharp-shinned seemed to have issues with the Cooper's hawk because the sharpie kept diving bombing the Cooper's.

On the south end of the lake (now overgrown), past the 10-foot high wall of cattails, which Jim Malone bravely plunged into, were several LeConte's. But after an hour's work criss-crossing the field, none of the little buggers had perched for us. Instead, they taunted us by flying ahead, diving into the weeds and running for their miserable little lives.
The field also has many sedge wrens in it. One marsh wren was heard along the western edge and several bobolinks hung out in the cattails on the north side of the field.
