I went out on Sunday morning with about 24 birders on the annual MRVAC
Dakota County Prairie Birds field trip and with perfect summer conditions
found 68 species before we burned out.  We started at Schaar's Bluff and
then visited the Archery Range, 140th Street marsh, Emery Avenue, and with
just a few birders left stopped at Lone Tree and the 190th Street natural
area. We found about 68 species including:
Lark Sparrows - east of the Archery Range on Pine Bend Trail
Orchard Orioles - about 6 at various places
Bell's Vireo - at 140th
Loggerhead Shrike - with two young ready to fledge on Emery
Red-shouldered Hawk - at Schaar's Bluff
Wood Thrush - singing at the Archery Range
