Some waders found around the oxbow lakes yesterday morning included Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Snowy Egret, Little Blue Herons, Cattle Egrets and Green Heron.

Also seen one Forster's Tern and five Black Terns, all five (5) species of swallows and Purple Martins. There were an abundance of Lark Sparrows, some Chipping Sparrows, Field Sparrows and Grasshopper Sparrows.

* One lone Snow Goose was hanging out with the canadas at Horseshoe Lake!! Appears to be well and uninjured in any way. Don't know what it is doing here now!
