Overall it was a very quiet day. We saw only 25 species all day. We visited Kenesaw sewage lagoons, Kenesaw marsh, 32 Mile Creek Reservoir, Roseland Lake, Juniata sewage lagoons, Prairie Lake and Hastings Lake.
At Kenesaw sewage lagoons, we saw about 20 Cackling Geese and one Rossâs Goose among a flock of Canada Geese. At Prairie Lake we saw a large mixed flock of sparrows and finches including three Song Sparrows. A flock of about 70 Sandhill Cranes flew over.
In Hall County, on the way home, we stopped at the truck stop at the Wood River I-80 exit and saw ten Great-tailed Grackles.
