Below is a copy of my eBird list for a trip to South Farm R-1 Lake in Boone Co. this afternoon. Highlights were a lot of DUCKS, a YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD (Mixed with a roving flock of Red-winged Blackbirds. First seen near the entrance to the pond, later seen at the far east end of Sugar Grove Rd. where it meets Rolling Hills Rd, so keep your eyes peeled for blackbird flocks in that whole general area if you go looking), a NELSON'S SPARROW, a DUNLIN and an OSPREY that wasn't seen again after catching a decent-sized bass.

Good birding,
