July 8 WBC rarity search

After some confusion, because the marker for the meeting location went to the Quality Inn instead of the main parking lot, we started off the day at Goose Lake Prairie SP. We began walking finding lots of Yellow-breasted Chats and Sedge Wrens. When we got to the King Rail spot, we found both of the KIRAs immediately plus a very strange duck. The duck was like no other duck I had ever seen before. We spent a good 15 minutes looking through field guides, but we could not find the bird. Our next and last stop was McKinley Woods FP to try to find the continuing Cerulean Warbler. We had less luck at McKinley Woods FP, but we did find a calling Tufted Titmouse and an Acadian Flycatcher.
