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!!!!

Malard stretch

Kind of a show off don’t you think?  Gorgeous bird!
