I chased after Kim Eckert's Mute Swan this morning without any success. The last two times I have chased after that species in Nicollet County, I end up with lots of Trumpeter Swans. Today I had 17, including 5 young of the year. They were scattered from CR111 to areas east of there.
However, east of that posted location on the Duck Lake-North Unit of the Swan Lake WMA I found a sleeping American Avocet tucked in with about a dozen Greater Yellowlegs. There were also Lesser Yellowlegs, Pectoral Sandpiper, and a flock of smaller peeps there as well.
