With visions of longspurs in my head (Ken's report below), I drove around some farmland east of Ravenna this morning before heading to the Wastewater. Very little bird life out there; a Wild Turkey, some Killdeer, etc., but no longspurs.
I'm guessing this piece of equipment on the southside
has to do with windmills?
A male Belted Kingfisher was on the landfill fence by the East Lagoon and this male Hooded Merganser (and a pair of Common Mergansers) were far down the White Road ditch east of Swanson. Two visiting birders said they'd had Eastern Meadowlarks in the cells between White and the West Lagoon this morning.
