An early morning walk around Manzanita Lake is so peaceful and relaxing. We were there early enough to hear the birds awakening and to watch the sun rise over the water.
A trail goes all around the lake and you can take your time looking for birds to add to your lifelist.
Let's get a little bit closer... There they are!
The only downside to birding while the sun is coming up is that you don't always get the best light for your photos.
