This tiny little bird is just packed full of personality. As I walked near the boardwalk at the Wakarusa Wetlands, it seemed every time I looked to my right, he was perched on a limb peaking out at me. My bird book says, “These birds are not shy.” So true! Click on pictures to enlarge.
I love grebes! They are just the cutest. I’m used to seeing pied-billed grebes around Lawrence (this one was near the 31st street entrance of the Wakarusa Wetlands), but I was more recently privileged to see a couple of horned grebes at Clinton. What a treat! I wish the picture quality was better on the horned-grebes, but it was a super cloudy day. Click on pictures to enlarge.
Everyone is busy choosing the best nesting spot, gathering materials, and building the perfect nest. These Wakarusa Wetlands bluebirds were checking out several different trees while I was there. Location, location, location. Click on pictures to enlarge.
I’ve been seeing quite a few minks at the Wakarusa Wetlands lately. They dart out to take a look at me, but move so quickly, they’re almost always gone by the time I get the camera up and ready. I have managed to get a few interesting shots over the last few weeks. They certainly are cute! Click on pictures to enlarge.
