I did a reservoir circuit today around Lincoln. Lots of waterfowl moving through right now. Highlights:

Memphis Lake WMA
2 Greater Yellowlegs

Yutan SL
single Red Crossbill flyover

Lake Wanahoo
19 Red-breasted Mergansers

Branched Oak Lake
4 White-winged Scoters (3 off Lieber's with a Surf, the other in the south branch)
3 Surf Scoters (1 with WWSCs off Lieber's, 2 in south branch)
21 Red-breasted Mergansers
3 Common Loons
1 Western Grebe
53 Horned Grebes

Conestoga Lake
2 Dunlins

Wagon Train Lake
1 White-winged Scoter

eBird, full checklists can be found at

Boaters at both Branched Oak and Pawnee were kicking up birds which was counterproductive.

Good birding
