This morning I decided mom and I needed to explore Saline County and add some birds to the county list. Our first stop was Lake Norrell. The only thing we could find on the lake were 2 Pied-billed Grebes, no ducks, lots of crows and vultures.
We gave up on Norrell and headed to Sunset Lake on the south side of Benton near I-30. There we found a small raft of Ruddy Ducks (7) a few Mallards mixing with the local mallards, a FOS Yellow-rumped Warbler, one Nashville Warbler, Winter Wren, and 2 Red-breasted Nuthatches. So cute to watch.
We added 7 birds to our Saline County list before heading home.
