I was able to find the Common Gallinule at the town of Ellendale (S of Owatonna) reported by Paul Suchanak on e-Bird. Actually I spotted two of them. The viewing is the best from the road to the sewage ponds on the east side of the railroad tracks - accessed by turning north on the east side of the grain elevator. Go just past the ballfield to gain elevation to see over the tracks.
