Little Gaynor Lake

The nature preserve that contains this small prairie pothole lake is often worth a check. Scanning from the blind on the north shore can turn up a good variety of ducks, often including Cinnamon Teal, Northern Shoveler, and Ruddy Duck, plus American Avocets and Wilson’s Phalaropes.
