Ryan and several others were along Post Office Lake when he said listen common redpoll! We all froze and sure enough the bird flew overhead calling out it's flight call. I was just shocked beyond belief for Ryan and I had been discussing my County Big Year potentials and he had said my next big chance would be a redpoll. This conversation was about 20 mins before the redpoll flew over us.

Yes I bowed to Ryan and this is at the top of the list for a story during my big year.

Also seen a northern shrike in the trees along the dike west of the parkinglot at Post Office Lake. A peregrine and red-shouldered hawk were also seen.
