I am so happy to see so many deer and turkeys this fall. They seem to be everywhere the last couple of weeks. Seeing them foraging together a few times was a nice treat. Click on pictures to enlarge.
And one lone turkey vulture. They will be leaving soon. I always miss their beautiful soaring, their kettles.
This fall weather is amazing. It was nice to leave for an appointment a couple of hours early and steal a bit of time at the lake. Click on pictures to enlarge.
Along with the pelicans and cormorants, the lake is busy with coots. They are everywhere! Today, we watched hundreds move along the shore. A pelican investigated to see what was so interesting about this particular part of the bank. One brave lone coot decided to see what the crows were up to. They were eating a fish until a turkey vulture came over to claim it. They thought they would be able to trick him/her into leaving, but it didn’t work. Click on pictures to enlarge.
So nice to see them again. Click on picture to enlarge.
We don’t often get out to this lake, but it is always a treat, particularly during a weekday morning when we’re the only humans around. Click on pictures to enlarge.
We took a splendid drive this afternoon to a lake we haven’t visited before. There were many turkey vultures soaking up the rain. We drove back downtown to the airport ponds, then the river to enjoy the many egrets and herons fishing in the rain.
