When I left Crex Meadows Wildlife Area at noon, no one had yet seen the Garganey today (28 April).  According to others with whom I spoke, observers made sporadic visits to Erickson Flowage as early as 0530, and one or more people were there continuously from perhaps 0915 until at least 1200; meanwhile, for every car parked near the intersection of Abel Rd. and County Rd. F, there were a couple more cars driving around, checking other lakes, ditches, etc.
