This morning the only open water I could find at Red Rock was below the dam. Eleven species of waterfowl included 3 AMERICAN BLACK DUCKS and 1 LONG-TAILED DUCK. Also present were single coot and pelican. Only two individual gulls were present, but one was the first year GREAT BLACK-BACKED GULL that has been bouncing around central Iowa this month.
