Seriously, Steven? A "rough trail?"

From the vantage point of the end of the trail that leads to Long Meadow Lake*, the bird was near the opposite shore, as you look south (right) towards the arches of the Highway 77 bridge. Be aware, it's something like a half-mile off, so you need a scope with 60 power or so! And even then, it’s not a very gratifying look.  By the way, Olaf was pretty calm given that it was his 700th US species! (maybe because he's seen them in Europe?)  * a narrow, rough trail that takes off from a main trail about 50 yards west of the wooden bridge  Stephen GreenfieldMinneapolistapaculo47 at gmail.com
