Coming to work this morning I spotted a great egret at the Ackerson Easterly wildlife area east of Colwell. Getting closer to Mason City there was one red-headed woodpecker at the pasture just west of the big marsh on 280th St. Sadly there was also a mallard on the pond with a badly broken wing.
At the pond on the intersection of 290th and Poplar there was a yellow warbler and the first scarlet tanager I've ever seen. Common but I always seem to miss them.
Finally, there were two sandpipers(least, I think) on the road along the west edge of Curries parking lot.
