It was another chance to practice with my camera and I got some really nice shots. A few are a bit blurry from the 16X digital zoom.....but I'm not going for awards, just birds.
At the start of the route we stopped and scoped the land......saw a female harrier put on a great show, floating effortlessly just feet from the ground.....just like harriers are supposed to.
Lots of Great Blue Herons in the fields and on the banks.
Scoping for mice and voles and other tasty tidbits.
Here's the hawk on the right and a nutria on the left.....we wondered if a hawk would be able to take a hefty beast like that. They checked each other out but that was about it......
There are three immature Bald Eagles in this tree. Doesn't matter if you can see them or not because the tree is just so gorgeous. But trust me, they're there.
