Received a call saying there were two White Pelicans at Meander Lake.  
Unfortunately there were no pelicans, but there were 10 American  
Avocets feeding in the round pond. While waiting to see if anyone  
would show up, I spotted a Lincoln Sparrow among the several Song  
Sparrows in the nearby brush. Went over to Patriot Lake to see if the  
pelicans might have moved over there, but no luck. There were 56  
Ruddy Ducks, 40+ Coots, 6 Tree Swallows and 4 Great Egrets.
As I walked back from the round pond, there were two idiots shooting  
arrows in my direction at a styrofoam deer. I had visions of my  
stuffed head ending up mounted over someone's fireplace. Who said  
birdwatching isn't dangerous and exciting? (Needless to say this  
activity is not permitted at Shelby Farms.) Also I didn't say  
anything, but got out of there in a hurry.
