Today eleven members of the Sioux Falls Bird Club visited Union Grove State
Park, and a number of wetlands and flooded farm fields in Lincoln County
between Beresford and Sioux Falls. The day was certainly chilly by May
standards, but we found just over 100 species as a group, including 13
warbler species at Union Grove.

On the way back to Sioux Falls, we searched for the Buff-breasted Sandpipers
seen yesterday near 471st Ave and 285th St, to no avail. We did find several
flocks of American Golden-Plovers, some Hudsonian Godwits, White-rumped
Sandpipers, Dunlins, and Short-billed Dowitchers in the surrounding area.

On my way home, I saw five White-faced Ibis at the Harmodon Park sloughs at
57th St and Highway 11 in southeastern Sioux Falls.

Our next club outing will be Saturday, June 9 to Newton Hills State Park.
