At 2:00 p.m. this afternoon I found a flock of 22 Ibises in Wilkin County in
western MN at the Meadows Waterfowl Production Area
. The birds were seen approximately 13 miles northeast of
. Seen on the south side of Co Rd 26/210th Street approximately
three tenths of a mile west of MN Hwy 9
The birds initially flushed from the south side of Co Rd 26 when I drove
past the area but returned to the same spot. Using my spotting scope I was
able to determine that at least 17 of the 22 birds were White-faced Ibises.
Was not able to get good looks at the remaining 5 birds to determine their
The birds were still present when I passed the same area around 4:45 p.m.
