Eirk Collins reported a Wilson’s phalarope on a pond south of Headwaters Parkway (south of the Forest Lake Airport). I did see one Wilson’s phalarope briefly as well as a small flock of peeps and possibly a dunlin. The latter birds were too far to id and when I moved closer I could not re-find a dunlin nor id the peeps. Several yellow-headed blackbirds were seen on the north side of the wetland and appeared to be guarding territory. I assume they are going to nest there. Also seen were Caspian and Forster’s terns and green-winged teal.
The wetland is not adjacent to the road so you will have to hike a little bit to see it.
