This morning I had to check on the Avocet nest. No chicks yet.
I did however get a better shot of the coot little ones. They were all still buried in the thistle and cat tails. This one peaked out for a second……
Tonight I was a bachelor and had to make some calls (thank goodness for cell phones) so I went out (again) to check on the Avocet nest. Still no chicks! Every trip out to FBBR puts me around common Malard ducks. A lot of them. Usually I down play the need to get a shot. Not much to shoot tonight. Until this guy did the big duck stretch!!!!
Kind of a show off don’t you think? Gorgeous bird!
