I compared our latest photos with the ones we took in March of 2015 and the landscape was a lot browner this time...
Any birding day you can start off by seeing an owl is a good one!
We saw red-winged blackbirds, coots, mallards, pintails, shovelers, scaups, pheasants, and A LOT of Buffleheads! I don't think we've ever seen that many Buffleheads in one place before!
This Rough-legged Hawk was enjoying the scenery as much as we were...
Too bad I can't add it to the Big Year 2017 list!
