This morning I birded Ledges State Park and Harrier Marsh in Boone County. After lunch I went to Dunbar Slough, the Raccoon River and Snake Creek and Wildlife Area in Greene County. Ended up with 89 species for the day, including 11 warbler species and 11 sparrow species.
Some of the best are these listed by site:
