Becky and I made it up to the lakeshore Friday afternoon in the sprinkles and rain.

At the east end of the Magee bird trail we had lots of Yellow-rumped and Palm Warblers, a single Black-throated Green, and two White-throated Sparrows.  From the west entrance to the small loop all we had were Grackles and Red-wings.  Mostly what we looked at were leaves misplaced by raindrops.

Apparently the marsh on the west side of the causeway is being drawn down.  On the exposed mud we had a few Killdeer, both Yellowlegs, a small group of Dunlin, one Spotted and an incongruous twenty Solitary Sandpipers.  Also on the causeway, we saw two Yellow Warblers and George taking a selfie with a bullfrog.

After pizza at Blackberry Corners we got to Metzger a little after 7:00 pm.  At the first parking area around the corner we heard three American Bitterns and a bunch of Sora, saw two Common Gallinule, the expected ducks, and two more Spotted Sandpipers flying up channel.  At the woodlot at the end of the road all we heard or saw were blackbirds; Grackles, Red-wings, and both of us heard the "song" of a Yellow-headed.  Could it have been a Grackle imitating a Yellow-headed?  Maybe, probably, we'll never know.
