There was a Tufted Titmouse in the tree line along the parking area of the Chaska Athletic Park near Chaska Lake. It was with a flock of mainly Juncos and Robins. Besides the Robins and the occasional Grackle, it was the only bird staying mid-canopy or higher. When I left the flock was in the tree line on the west side of the Athletic Park closest to the entrance gate.
Also at the Chaska Lake but along the trail: Red-breasted Nuthatch, Purple Finch, Eastern Phoebe, Eastern Bluebird, Belted Kingfisher, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Song, Clay-colored, Swamp, White-throated, Harris', Fox, and Tree Sparrow. The lake had mainly Coot and a Great Blue Heron.
Purgatory Creek yesterday still had a lingering Nashville Warbler(the only warbler of the day), Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Whitethroated, Lincoln's, Song, Swamp, and Tree Sparrow. No changes at the blind: Coot, Green-winged Teal, Northern Shoveler(more than in past weeks), Mallard, and Pied-billed Grebe.
To get to Chaska Lake take W. 1st St. from Hwy 41 until you reach the Athletic Park. W. 1st St. is closed from Hwy 212 and can not be accessed from the west. All parking is street parking, as the gate to the athletic park is locked.
