This afternoon I checked Eagle Bluffs to see what the wind brought in...
 
Pied-billed grebe 30-35 
 
other usual suspects:
Blue-winged teal  50
American coot  10
Greater yellowlegs  5
Killdeer  6
"Peeps"  15-20
Turkey vultures  6
American kestrel  (F)  1
Red-winged blackbird
American goldfinch
Tree swallow
Double-crested cormorant  1
Barn swallow
Mourning dove
American crow  2
Horned lark  2
Great egret
Great blue heron
 
Little Dixie Lake:
 
Double-crested cormorant  7
Blue-winged teal  15
Tern spp. -  I'm 90% sure this is a Forster's tern but it was too windy to hold my bins still enough to get all the details.  Primaries whitish, white tail longer than primaries, definite black eye patch but could have had full cap.  This bird was sitting on stumps in the middle of the lake off the disabled fishing point. 
 
Cheers,
Tiffanie Hamilton
