      The site manager at the Hennepin reported seeing a BLACK-BELLIED
      WHISTLING-DUCK at Hennepin on Tuesday. The site manager is very
      knowledgeable about ducks, and it talking to him, I am convinced that he saw
      a Whistling-Duck. It was in the cattails at the southeast end of the island
      southwest of the observation tower. Although he was in a boat fishing when
      he saw the bird, that location would be visible from either the observation
      tower or the fishing parking lot, unless the bird is hidden back in the
      cattails.
      Hennepin/Hopper Lake is located about 2 miles south of the town of
      Hennepin west of Route 29, on the east side of the Illinois River. To get
      to the tower, turn right (west) onto Hennepin Farms Road. Then turn right
      on a small dirt road just past the first farmhouse on the right.
