Birding in South Dakota & SW Minnesota

OK, so I was at a Shorebird workshop last weekend and had a great time.

Part of that fun was staying at the Prairie Marsh Farm owned by Ken & Mary Lou Larson.

After the workshop was over we had some work to do. Bad storms smashed much of the area on Thursday, July 31st and trees and limbs were down on the farm (it was much worse elsewhere). I spent over an hour hauling limbs and then I got to help mow the lawn, farm style:

I had a blast driving a tractor for the first time and spent about 2 hours cutting the sizable lawn.
