Deer and Turkeys
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.
A great morning for birds
I spent a few hours at the Wakarusa Wetlands and Clinton Lake this morning. Much activity! 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.

A morning at Lone Star Lake
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.
And more Earth Day wonders!
A swallow, turkey vultures sunbathing, and warblers. It is a truly magnificent world. Click on pictures to enlarge.
