Hey birders,

I chased after Kim Eckert's Mute Swan this morning without any success.  The last two times I have chased after that species in Nicollet County, I end up with lots of Trumpeter Swans.  Today I had 17, including 5 young of the year.  They were scattered from CR111 to areas east of there.

However, east of that posted location on the Duck Lake-North Unit of the Swan Lake WMA I found a sleeping American Avocet tucked in with about a dozen Greater Yellowlegs.  There were also Lesser Yellowlegs, Pectoral Sandpiper, and a flock of smaller peeps there as well.

Happy birding!
