I found a single Piping Plover at the flooded field NW of Pennock, .8 mile north of Hwy 12 on 120th St. When I looked at my photos I discovered that the bird has a green band on its right leg. I also found two Piping Plovers at Olson Lake in the SW part of Kandiyohi County. There were also three American Avocets at Olson Lake.
Also at Olson Lake:
Short-billed and Long-billed Dowitchers
Baird's, Least, Semipalmated and Pectoral Sandpipers
At the location NW of Pennock:
Thanks to Randy Frederickson for sharing these productive locations.
To end the day I ventured to the Nature Conservancy area south of Regal. It was absolutely magical to serenaded at dusk by American Bittern, Soras, Marsh and Sedge Wrens, Swamp Sparrows, VIrginia Rails and American Woodcock.
