Thanks for the correction.  I've eaten there, and it's good--food and great view.  We were disappointed at the Closed sign at lunch time, so didn't check the hours.

Yes, David and I saw one common loon at 1000 Hills yesterday too. But, the restaurant IS open (after 4 p.m., I believe) and we got awesome looks from inside while enjoying a glass of wine!

June Newman and I met up for a day of birding to the north.  At Thousand Hills SP we were treated with the sight of 11 Common Loons.  Most were visible from the vicinity of the (not yet open) restaurant and marina area.  Other finds included several duck species, among them 2 female Common Mergansers; a bathing newly arrived Osprey; lingering juncos; and newly arrived Chipping Sparrows, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers and Ruby-crowned Kinglets.

At Long Branch SP, a single Common Merganser eschewed the company of the multitudes of scaup and ruddies.  Gulls included 9 Bonaparte's and 1 Franklin's.

Full lists on SPARKS later.
