So wonderful to see this group of American Avocets at the wetlands this morning! They are a bit hard to see, but there are also some Wilson’s Phalarope in the mix. It was a cold, wet, windy morning, so the pelicans were hanging out pretty close together. I also saw my first sora of the season. I have been hearing them, but this was the first good look.

If I could, I would walk the wetlands every morning. There is something magical about spending a couple of hours just wandering around, listening to the sounds, and watching all the activity. I like to think that those who think destroying the wetlands for a highway is in any way a good idea would change their minds if they just spent some time there. If you’re on Facebook, I encourage you to become a fan of the Wetlands Preservation Organization. Click on pictures to enlarge.
I spend a few hours at the Wakarusa wetlands this morning. It started out pretty foggy, but once the sun came out, it was a very nice morning. Click on pictures to enlarge.
