Comments:
With Nate Senner. 60F, SW wind at 15mph. We started at the dam and proceeded west along the south shore to Minooka Park. Spent most effort at Minooka Park looking for passerines and owls in the shelterbelts. Excellent looks at LeConte''s, Nelson''s Sparrows, plus 1 Sedge Wren on Reservoir Road. A pair of Mountain Bluebirds at the Minooka Park campground was also a highlight. The lake was fairly devoid of birds. The Harris''s Sparrow was my FOS.
