Located the Black-bellied Whistling Ducks at Lake Manawa at the same place as Jan Greer described yesterday. I saw 9 of them. I have not reported this on the birdlines previously because I heard it third hand, but at least one BBWD was seen June 27 on the Iowa side of the Bellevue Bridge Road a little south of Lake Manawa on a private road. I was thinking that perhaps they nested there so I looked and determined that all 9 of the BBWD I saw today were in adult plumage. Also present on the Lake were 5 Forester's Terns.
