Saylorville Reservoir, September 7, 2019

September 22, 2019 8:08 PM | Tyler Harms (Administrator)

Our search for migrating shorebirds at Saylorville Reservoir on September 7 was a success!  Ten young birders, parents, and grandparents got to see seven different species of shorebirds including a flock of 16 Red-necked Phalaropes, an uncommon shorebird in Iowa, and close looks at a Baird's Sandpiper!  Along with the shorebirds, we found an additional 23 species including Caspian Tern, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, and Cooper's Hawk to name a few.  It was a great morning of fall birding in Iowa!  You can view photos from our trip here and our complete species list here.
