I birded Horseshoe Lake in Madison County, Ill., late Saturday morning. The 
best birds were four horned grebes seens with a scope from the last pull off 
before the dredge on the Bend Road side (accessible from Route 203). Other 
birds of interested were 18 snow geese, two Ross's geese, American wigeon, 
green-winged teal, blue-winged teal and Northern pintail.

After seeing the post about the golden eagle at BK Leach on Friday, I headed 
there and arrived at about 4 p.m. I did not locate it, but I did find 30 
plus Wilson's snipe (the first I've encountered this year), one Northern 
harrier, white pelicans, a sharp-shinned hawk, barred owl and various 
species of duck.

I was briefly at Forest Park on Friday and found one American wigeon in the 
lake between Steinberg Ice Rink and the Science Center and several wood 
ducks throughout the park.

Later,
