While co-leading a field trip at Afton State Park for the Hastings Area
Birding Festival this morning, I heard a LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH. The group
didn't get visuals, but we got to listen to it sing clearly and repeatedly.
The bird was down the main trail from the upper picnic area, to the left of
and downhill from the picnic shelter where the trail splits. This bird is
in appropriate nesting habitat, and I'm cautiously hopeful that it may
stick around for the season.
Afton State Park is in Washington County.
