A spin around Lake of the Lilies never disappoints me.
The air has been crisp and cool on some days and warm and sunny on others.
There are always a lot of Mallards...they are here year round.
Can you handle those cute little tail curls?
The Greater Scaup
This is a bulky, robust diving duck, present here only during the fall and winter.
The Red Winged Black Birds will be leaving soon, they do not spend their winters here.
The Killdeer is boldly marked, long legged and noisy.
This Plover has long wings and a long tail, when standing, it has a more elongated appearance.
Sexes are similar.
My bird book says that Mute Swans are here year round but I don't see them in the winter.
- for one minute, walk outside, stand there, in silence,
look up at the sky and contemplate how amazing life is -
