I just had to go down to Bean Lake and see the Tricolored Heron again! It was probably somewhere "out of view" and I did not see it. But I "messed around" the other oxbows on my way down there and did not arrive at Bean Lake until about 11 o'clock.
 
Some of the "other" birds which I "did" see were:
 
Double-crested Cormorant -1 at Lake Contrary
Little Blue Heron (1 - Muskrat Lake and 1 - Bean Lake) both adults)
Great Egret, about 40 at Bean
Snowy Egret - 2 at Bean
 
Also had Great Blue Herons, Pied-billed Grebes, Blue-winged Teal, Wood Ducks and one Mallard. Ten Forster's Terns at Contrary, Black Terns and Ring-billed Gulls. Purple Martins and all the swallows except Bank, which were probably around and I just missed. Grasshopper and Chipping Sparrows.
 
Twelve species of shorebirds:
Semipalmated Plover - 1 at Muskrat Lake
Killdeer - at all areas
Upland Sandpiper - 2 at Muskrat Lake in short green grass, east end.
Greater Yellowlegs - one at Muskrat Lake
Solitary Sandpiper - at all (Contrary, Muskrat, Bean Lakes)
Spotted Sandpiper - all
Wilson's Phalarope - 2 at Muskrat Lake
Semipalmated Sandpiper - all
Western Sandpiper - 1 at Muskrat Lake
Least Sandpiper - all
Pectoral Sandpiper - all
Stilt Sandpiper - 1 at Muskrat Lake
