There were not quite as many ducks and gulls on the lakes today compared to
yesterday. But the Ring-billed, Franklin's and Bonaparte's are still there in
pretty good numbers. The majority are Bonaparte's (no Little or Black-headed).

Two American Avocets were nice finds at Lake Contrary. Also seen: Greater
Yellowlegs, Dunlin and Wilson's Snipe (with the ubiquitous Killdeer).

In the "corn stubble" fields there were great numbers of blackbirds:
Red-winged, Brewer's, Rusties, Common Grackles and Brown-headed Cowbirds. *Sorry,
Tommie, no Bronzed Cowbirds yet.
