I wound up with fifty photographs I felt were worth posting.
Canada geese in a flyby.
The coots were hilarious this time. Displaying on the water, and they kept coming out of the water too. Look at the size of their feet!
A great blue heron was hanging out. He was on a roof across the river at first, but then he came to the pond.
A male belted kingfisher was the first bird to greet us.
Lesser scaups, all female.
The obligatory mallard. The light was hitting him so nicely, I had to take that shot.
Couple of rodents too--a mouse, who bopped right up to me. Probably had rabies. Or something. And a muskrat in the water.
Lots of red-shafted flickers, all female.
The red-tailed hawk came in just as we were leaving and losing the light. These aren't the best pictures, but he was such a beautiful bird.
Greater and lesser scaups.
