(near Lake Nokomis). Due to the wind (I believe) it was not entirely
cooperative. I had to wait well over half an hour to catch a brief glimpse,

undergrowth south of the BIG, burned tree stump last night.
Also present was a flock of *Cedar Waxwings, Forsters Tern* (pretty
Kingbirds* (in the mud on the shore) a* Yellow Warbler* and several *
Baltimore Orioles* among the usual suspects.
Bonus bird was a *Warbling Vireo* at 20 feet(FOY) on the way back to the
Next, it was down to the airport where the *Mockingbird* was at the same
spot as last year and very cooperative. See other posts for specific
directions. I recommend sitting at the cul-de-sac facing the obelisk like

I drove up and got 20 feet from the mocker on the fence.
Big thanks again to Diana Doyle for finding these birds!
