We have had many long and short drives in the car.
Visited many lakes, ponds, bodies of water and parks.
Although we have enjoyed the rides,
I have not been seeing many interesting birds or notable wildlife.
There are 2 Egrets living at Lake of the Lilies, both very skittish and difficult to photograph.
One full grown, one is very tiny.
I took pictures of the tiny one, but none are "shareable"!
Is an elegant, stately, pure white, heron-like bird.
Larger than the Snowy Egret, it is present here only during spring and summer.
Red-Winged Blackbirds are everywhere at the lake.
This Blackbird is contender for North America's most abundant bird.
It is present year round here and has a beautiful, unforgettable song/call!
Killdeer also abundant and easy to photograph.
Boldly marked, long legged, noisy plover, they are present in this area year round.
