Tuesday Morning Tour of Haehnle Sanctuary

Tuesday, December 07, 2021 12:00 PM | Steve Jerant (Administrator)

Gary Siegrist lead a tour of Hahenle on Tuesday.  Weather was overcast but not too cold (like last year).  There is no open water in Mud Lake Marsh but Eagle Lake is still partially open and we got to see some late Trumpeter Swans on the water and flying over us later in our walk.  There is high water in the back prairie.

We had a good collection of woodpeckers but the sparrow count was low.  

The next tour on December 21 is on the Hoffman Trail.
