I meant to post last night (sorry!) but I also was passing through, yesterday, and stopped to look for the Williamson’s, 3:30-4:30pm. No luck for me either, though I did have lots of activity — 8 Downies, 2 Hairy, 3 Red-bellied, 1 Flicker, 1 YB Sapsucker, 1 BrownCreeper, lots of robins, and a flyover Sharp-shinned.
Earlier in the day, fishing in the Sutherland Canal where it comes out of Lk Ogallala, I had 1 ad male winter Long-tailed Duck and a Surf Scoter in the canal w L.Scaup, Buffleheads, and Redhead. Also 3 magpies flew past.

Was fairly birdy there, however, with the best bird being a Brown Creeper. Saw 4 or more Downy WPs and 3 or more Red-bellied WP. Also Cedar Waxwings and a flock of Blue Jays. Did have a quick look at one bird which I felt was a YB Sapsucker, but not positive of that.
