Saturday – cool, breezy, threatening clouds, off-and-on rain. Still we saw plenty of birds and not just geese and ducks as we’ve seen on previous days this spring. At least one lifer for me – a Redhead (noooooo, not Lucy – think duck). Red-winged blackbirds are always everywhere around the preserve but of course since we decided to try to photograph their brilliant colors, they did not want to cooperate. Eventually I got some good photos. Also snapped shots of a blue-winged teal, great blue heron, goslings, and a dunlin who looked to be “singin’ in the rain.” At mud lock the month-old eaglets sat atop the nest with mom and pop keeping watch from adjacent trees. Some of the photos aren’t great quality but it’s nice to have a record of what I’ve seen.
