This afternoon, during a walk through Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park, 
Anoka County, we spotted our first-of-season Northern Shrike.  It was 
perched in a small tree along the west shore of Cenaiko Lake, near 
Pavilion 4.

We also saw our FOS White-crowned Sparrows southwest of Cenaiko Lake.  
All 4 were hatch-year birds.

Other birds of note:
2 adult Bald Eagles perched at the upstream end of the island below the dam
1 Pied-billed Grebe in Cenaiko Lake.
