Hey birders,
 
I'm not on the web much over the weekend, but I thought I'd give a few details of the bird at Lily Lake.  The bird was found by Andrew Krenz on Friday night around 6:15pm and foraged primarily on the south and southwest sides of the lake.  It disappeared a couple of times while we were watching it.  There is a small point with some fallen logs that it went behind a couple of times and it also disappeared into the grassy southwestern corner.  The bird did such a disappearance before we left the area and could not be relocated on Friday night.
 
This morning (Saturday), I relocated the  bird right away when we pulled up around 7:20am and we called Bob Dunlap to post it.  It was behind the small point again and almost immediately flew about a foot above the water to the west (about 100 yards), disappearing again into the grassy southwestern corner.  It did not look like a departure flight.  We tried to find the bird for another 40 minutes but then headed toward Lincoln WPA and eastern Watonwan County for some pre-planned birding.  I will try and relocate the bird again on Sunday if I have the time.  
 
Happy birding!
