Welcome to Fall

One of the great things about fall is just sitting in the yard watching. We are fortunate to be in an area where we not only have many animals living around us, but many flying over on their way to the Wakarusa Wetlands or the Kansas River. During migration time, it is not unusual to see hundreds of flybys by geese, gulls, nighthawks, and other birds. Seeing all the Monarchs, dragonflies, and other butterflies is amazing.

Coots and gulls

A couple of weeks ago, I was watching a huge number of coots moving about at Clinton Lake. I also noticed quite a few gulls flying about. There was a lot of splashing going on, then I realized they were not all just hanging out together. The gulls were actually dive-bombing the coots and taking their fish away.
