My hubby is the best birding partner I could ask for! Ever since I heard about Sandhill Cranes flocking to the Llano Seco Unit during their migration, I couldn't wait to see them with my very own eyes. Well, thanks to my hubby, I finally got to see them! It was his idea to drive over to the Wildlife Management Area to see if there was finally some water there.
When we arrived, it looked like they had just started filling it up and there was just enough water to attract exactly what I was looking for. At first glance, I thought there was a group of ostriches or emus in the field! Turns out, they were Sandhill Cranes and they were HUGE! Much bigger than I thought they would be.

Every time I go birding I learn something new about birds! At Colusa NWR we kept seeing these ducks with yellow eyes and wide bills. They looked like Shovelers to me, but I thought they might be something different because I'd never seen a (male) Shoveler without a green head and bold rufous and white coloring.

Sometimes you don't have to go all the way to the SNWR to spot wildlife. These beauties were hanging out on the frontage road that runs parallel to I-5 on the way to the refuge.
