On our way up to Duluth we stopped at Crex Meadows. We heard there were some American White Pelicans on Phantom Lake but when we arrive we could only find one. It looked like it might have an injured wing.

There were plenty of ducks around including quite a few Ring-necked ducks on the various flowages.

We saw quite a few Canada Geese around some of them had Goslings with them others were still on the nest.

We also saw some Pied-billed Grebes on some of the flowages.

There were lots of Trumpeter Swans although we were sad to see that a pair that had been nesting right next to the road was no longer around. The Muskrat house they had been nesting on was gone. No idea what happened. There were some Sandhill Cranes in the same area.
