Went on the 3-day to Salt Lake, on the MN/SD border, sponsored by The Minnesota Ornithologists’ Union. Had an absolutely fabulous time! Saw lots of waterfowl, including a Ross's Goose, Blue Wing Teal, Northern Shovelers, American Coot, Northern Pintail, Ruddy Ducks, Wood Ducks and Hooded Mergansers. Saw lots of American White Pelicans, also. Shorebirds were plentiful in the flooded fields, and included Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, Baird's Sandpiper, Pectoral Sandpiper, Wilson's Phalarope, and a Marbled Godwit. Unfortunately, my husband and I were not among the group that saw the White Faced Ibis or the American Avocets. We did, however, add several birds to our state lists for both MN and SD, and we saw several Gray Partridge, a lifelister for us. Altogether, we identified over 60 species of birds, and seven mammels. The most ubiquitous were the Ring Necked Pheasants (we were practically tripping over them), the Yellow-headed and Red-winged Blackbirds and the Eastern Meadowlarks; however, we also saw several species of woodpecker and hawks. The weather was great, and the camaraderie of the experienced birders with the MOU was wonderful! I would recommend this event to anyone who finds themselves in the MN/SD area the last weekend of April next year.
