Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge

Yesterday our friend, Rebecca, took us to visit
Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge in Minnesota.
In addition to this view of a Trumpeter Swan alone,
we also saw a mother Trumpeter Swan with her babies.
We had several good views of Bald Eagles in their nest.
 Bird sightings also included Sandhill Cranes, Double-Crested Cormorants,
Blue Heron, Killdeer, Canadian Geese, Common Yellowthroat, and Barn Swallows.
The Barn Swallow circled us anxiously as we inspected her unique nest!.
We also enjoyed a special lunch at Russell's on the Lake in Big Lake, MN.
