I started my day out at a lake that I like to visit in the spring / summer. I was hoping to see some goslings but all I found was 1 goose who appeared to be on a nest possibly.
After that I went to another larger lake nearby. No goslings here either. But I found another goose who appeared to be on a nest. They sure got upset when they saw me lol Today was a great day for reflections in the water. Just beautiful.
I saw a lot of different types of birds, and 1 deer. They are not in order, I decided it was just easier to group them by type.
(females are brown / males have green heads)
(females are brown / males have brown heads)
Unknown Duck(I have no idea what these are, I see them at every pond, only saw 1 today though!)
Red-Winged Black Birds(females are brown / males are black with red heads)
Northern Flicker Woodpecker
(females are paler, but hard to tell on these guys)
Not a common sight here, I have never seen one before.
Great Blue Herons
I saw 2 today, at 2 different locations, flying over me.
I think I may have heard a nest with babies near these guys, I couldn't see one but it sounded like it, and when the robins got close they made a big fuss.
I have seen them twice before, 1 each time over about 3 or 4 years. I love this bird. They are so fast I never get a great photo of them, as they are always flying by.
I saw 5 today, they sure know how to give a girl a heart attack lol, they fly up from the ground when you get close. At least I got a few pictures this time.
Had to take his or her picture for my friend Stacy. :)
Wren of some type ?
I am really not sure, I just got this picture and it was gone.
Red-Tailed Hawk ? & an American Crow
And now for some excitement. I was at the first lake and heard a big argument between birds, looked up and saw a crow pestering this poor hawk. He chased him out of the tree and then they fought in the air for a few minutes until they both went separate ways.
And later on I saw this Starling (I think?) chasing a crow lol
Mule DeerI also saw this beautiful deer today. Hiding from the busy construction area in a peaceful area in front of the lake.
