    Sorry. Should have mentioned the road closed sign. The road is NOT closed nor is it under construction. Have no idea why that sign is there but just ignore it.

      > At Hennepin Hopper on Sunday I spent far too much time scoping in the hot sun for the Western Grebe that Jeff Smith found last Sunday and which Karen Fisher told me coming in that she and Bob had just viewed off the boat ramp. Had great scope views of the Black and Common Terns that were out there, and a small part of my brain was ticking off the birds I was hearing (cannot call it a bad birding day when Yellow-headed Blackbird is demoted to heard-only incidental) -- but a birding error on my part - that is a decent size and distinctive bird - since it was there but I could find it despite scoping from multiple positions, I should have switched to the observation tower before I hit the meltdown/no-more-time point.
