Subject: [sd-birds] Silver Lake - Little Blue Heron and others
i birded north of Yankton today, first at Edelman WPA. Best birds there are a nice group of Black-crowned Night-Herons and a Peregrine Falcon.

A farm pond a couple of miles south of Silver Lake had 56 Wilson’s Phalaropes.

At Silver Lake I looked for and found the Little Blue Heron the Kelly Preheim reported yesterday. I got a few poor, distant images. There was a nice assortment of birds in the area.

List below:
