I attended the Anoka County birding day (thanks, Craig - a good time was had
by all) and also managed to get down to the Bass Ponds tonight. FOY birds
for me today:

*Anoka Cty*:
Golden-crowned kinglet - usually a tough one for me to see!
Ruby-crowned kinglet
Yellow-rump Warbler
Hermit Thrush
Brown Creeper
Red-necked Grebe
Horned Grebe - another one I've seldom seen
Great-horned Owl
Sandhill Crane
Red-headed woodpecker

Good looks at many other birds too!

*Bass Ponds*:
Cinnamon Teal - thanks to Denny & Barb Martin, who refound the bird around
6:45pm near where it was last seen by Doug Kieser
Swamp Sparrow - out near the waters edge, a nice up close but brief look.
There were two very cooperative & photogenic Ruddy Ducks and a Beaver!

I also stopped at Cliff Fen park about 7:30pm to look for Woodcock but did
not see any.
