I went birding around eastern Lincoln Co. this afternoon hoping for some of the recent rarities. Despite last night's hard freeze, the American Avocet was still going strong at Sandy Slough. I did not see any Least Sandpipers. I struck out on the Prairie Falcon after spending quite a bit of time in the area. One Lapland Longspur was playing "which of these things is not like the other" with a group of Horned Larks, but otherwise things were pretty quiet in the river bottoms. A good variety of puddle bucks were in the open spots of Sandy Slough north of the lock.
