Following a weekend of presentations in Prairie duChein and Dubuque I dropped by Beaver Bottoms Wetlands this morning, south of Granger and in Dallas County. At every bend in every back-water and pond, ducks erupted by the hundreds! Mostly Mallards and Gadwall, with a sprinkling of Hooded Mergansers and GW Teal.. Also Pied-billed Grebe, but no Woodies yet..
Yesterday morning I spotted a few Sandhill Cranes along the north side of Prairie duChein when I left and started south. They were along the river (behind the Cabela’s store).
