Since migration has slowed a bit the last couple of days here in central MN, 
allow me to recommend the Princeton sewage ponds (also known as CR 2 ponds). 
There's been a decent mix of waterfowl there (up to 15 species) - sprinkled 
among the numerous Ring-neckeds are Canvasbacks (60+), Redheads (a few) and 
all three mergansers (not every day).  Between 400 & 500 birds were present 
today at 12:45.

Checked the Isanti CR 5 Great Blue Heron rookery over lunch (about a mile 
east of Sherburne CR2, which is functionally the same road) - last week it 
had 30+ herons nesting, noted none visible today (which is, admittedly, not 
a great day to be at the top of trees).

Good (but chilly) birding to all!
