Common Moorhen, Sherburne Refuge Auto Tour, pool just past three mile 
marker, left hand side.

Sherburne Refuge is easily reachable from Highway 169.  Take 169 to CR 9, 
head west (which will take you past the headquarters and two trails), then 
turn south on CR 5 to the Prairie Wildlife Auto Tour.

Rather ironic that a regionally rare bird's first name is "Common", but 
guess such is our stock in trade (Do Tennessee/Nashville Warblers nest in 
Tennessee?  What about the mild pink abdomen blush - at best - on 
Red-bellied Woodpeckers?  When's the last time you saw the ring on a 
Ring-necked Duck? etc.)

Good birding to all!
