Very nice day! Hadn't even left Buffalo and saw the resident Coopers, then a barred owl just outside of town. Went down along the Mississippi on Concord and saw a ring-necked duck, a couple of canvasbacks, a common merganser, several common goldeneyes amid a bunch of mallards and a good-sized flock of pelicans. Then found the largest bunch of eagles I've ever seen scattered under the 280 bridge on the ice, sitting in trees, lots of successful fishing. I think there must have been around 75 of them.
Went on down the road and found three pileated woodpeckers.
Kept on going down to L&D 14 and there wasn't much going on there at all, especially not compared to Concord. That was a surprise.
Wandered around the gravel roads up north along Lost Grove and Scott County Park and somewhere in there found a short-eared owl we watched for quite some time sitting on a corn stalk.
Driving was a little hairy, but it was certainly worth it.
