April 15, 2017 - The Bird Sanctuary was slow, however, a coveted Purple Finch (female) was at the feeding station for over an hour until I left. I stayed to find a male seen days ago by Michael Topp, but no luck, yet. There were Sharp-shinned, Red-tailed, Cooper's Hawks and 4 Turkey Vultures overhead. The west end gate is finally open.
JoAnn called me to say there is an American White Pelican at Wolf Lake, so heading there now.
