We didn't know what to expect today at Turkey Creek; the front is moving
closer and the temperature was pleasantly cooler - what a relief not to
sweat constantly.  However, the birding was basically similar to the past
few days - no flocks, a little slow at times but enough migrants to make it
a very enjoyable morning for all of us.  Lenny Shelp came over from St.
Cloud and Phyllis Mansfield showed up also. Late in the morning we ran
across Herman Bechtel who birded with us awhile.  The following list is a
compilation of all sightings.
