My students and I found an American Avocet on Perch Lake
My students and I found an American Avocet on Perch Lake northeast of Mapleton this afternoon around 3:15pm. Take 599th Ave north from CR4 to view the lake. There are plenty of mudflats (at least for now) and the bird was working the open water about 40 yards out. Also present: ~50 mixed yellowlegs and Pectoral Sandpipers.
New arrivals to the area: Black-and-white Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Sora.
P.S. I heard from Andrew Krenz that he was unable to relocate the mockingbird today in Watonwan County.
