March 11 WBC trip

Our day started at Air Station Prairie. Right from the start, we saw many Red-winged Blackbirds and Common Grackles. We walked down one of the many paths finding sparrows, American Robins, and an unidentified falcon/Accipiter. From there we drove south to Lake Glenview. At the lake, we found a flock of 15 Red-breasted Mergansers, 4 American Coots, a Common Goldeneye, Canada Geese, and Mallards. Our last stop was Techny Basin where we found some Killdeer, Mourning Doves, and a Cardinal attacking his own reflection in a window.
