A single WF Ibis was present at noon, but was a long way out and a scope was necessary.

The Root River is flooding near Hokah, Minnesota and creating some amazing 
shorebird habitat.  Where CR 26 crosses the Root River, there is a short road 
leading to a boat launch and a large utility shed.  From this road you can look 
west into a flooded field and see hundreds (1000s?) of Yellowlegs, numerous 
Ring-billed and Bonaparte's Gulls, numerous ducks and two White-faced Ibis.  
When I first saw the birds around 8:30AM, they were close enough to easily see 
the white facial border.  I checked on the birds at around 10AM, and they were 
actively feeding further out.
