We have taken several rides around Lake of the Lilies these past few days.
I have heard that the Whistling Ducks are back but I did not see them.
The lake is however filled with Mute Swans, at least 50, probably more.
I saw 2 Great Egrets and a lot of pretty birds.
The lovely Mute Swan
Next up, the Great Egret
Catch of the day...
The Egret has a fish in both of these pictures.
It was a successful fishing expedition!
And this bird which I could use some help identifying...
It seemed like a typical Sparrow or Finch, but did not match any pictures in my book,
with its solid gray chest, shorter tail and no black on its wings.
Its beak was on the larger, thicker side.
Almost all Sparrows in this area have black on their wings.
