I wanted to share a couple of shorebird locations in Blue
Hey birders,

I wanted to share a couple of shorebird locations in Blue Earth County as the southbound migration ramps up.

The first is on CR16 south of CR10.  It is a flooded field on the west side of the road.  This morning there were over 100 shorebirds (mostly Killdeer) with Lesser Yellowlegs, Spotted, Solitary, Least, Semipalmated, Baird's, and Pectoral Sandpipers.   This field is tiled into Cobb River.  Right now it is perfect, but if water levels drop, it could dry up quickly.

The other location is northeast of there.  Take CR168 east from CR16 just north of the prior location.  Go east past Lakewood Drive and you will see it on your south side.  This location is a flooded cornfield adjacent to the road.  It is too wet currently and had no shorebirds, but last fall I had over 100 American Golden-Plovers there so it may develop as the season progresses.

Happy birding!

Chad Heins
