Refound the Acadian Flycatcher, on Mon 5/31, at Upper Sioux State Park that 
Bill Marengo found on May 18th.

Also refound on the same day the Prothonotary Warbler that he found on the 
21st at the Lower Sioux Agency historic site.

> Prothonotary Warbler - Redwood County
> This bird was found Tuesday at the Lower Sioux Agency Historic site along

> Hike the river trail east of the interpretive center down to the river.

> was very vocal when I saw it mid-afternoon.

The Eastern Screech Owl he found was calling away (by a very small road 
pulloff) and was keeping time with a Whip-poor-will accross the road,  In 
fact that road had one of the best Whip-poor-will demonstrations we had 
heard in years.  At least 7 different birds were singing along Chippewa Cty 
Road 40's 3 mile length between State Highway 212 and the Renville Cty line. 
And no traffic along the asphalt road.

> A cooperative Eastern Screech Owl along Chippewa county road 40 about .25
> mile west of the Renville county line (or about 200 yards downstream from
> the MN River public access).
