I spotted an adult Loggerhead Shrike in Grant County on Tues (9/5).  It was
northeast of the North Ottawa Impoundment on 270th St approx  of a mile
east of 300th Ave (east of the farm with the house number 29458).  This spot
is SW of Wendell; 3.2 miles west of CR11 and 2 miles south of CR55, just a
short distance from Mud Lake.


It was perched on a post and flew up to the power line after I passed by.
It was all by itself in a fairly open area.


By the way, Ash Lake is now very dry and I found only a few Killdeer 
nothing else.  There was a small strip in the NE corner with some water with
grass growing in it but it was void of any birds (i.e., no American
Golden-Plovers, Buff-breasted Sandpipers or Red-necked Phalaropes that had
been reported a week ago).  I was able to spot 14 American Golden-Plovers
hanging out at the NW corner of the North Ottawa Impoundment (just south of
260th St at the county line with Traverse).
