A quick entry to say that I spent Sunday afternoon in strong winds trying to get a look at what has shown up at the marsh on 180th Street in Dakota County, Minnesota and even though most of the birds were in the more protected area at the back of the marsh it was a pretty good day. Using the car as a windbreak and scanning with my scope I was able to see some nice migrating waterfowl. The list for the day is as follows:
Bald Eagle (1)
Loggerhead Shrike (1)
The next few days will see several weather systems move through the area which will bring some much needed rain but won't do much to cool down the temperature. Highs are still predicted to be in the 70s for the rest of the week. What a strange March it is.
