Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge
Well, it’s that time of the year to go to Squaw Creek to see the eagles again. I’ve gone there the last two Mondays is a row. The water level is much better this year so there’s more to see. The first Monday was warm and there were a lot of Snow Geese.
But, almost no one talks about the swans.
And Coots. As I mentioned on Facebook where I first posted this next picture, Coots get no respect but I really like them. This one has a friend!
Because it was still warm, these guys were still sunning themselves.
Last Monday it was a bit colder. It had been below freezing the previous couple of days so much of the water was frozen. Many of the geese had moved to open water elsewhere but the mallards were still on some small areas of open water on the refuge.
I saw a lot of Herons but they all looked very cold to me.
Here’s another one that looks cold and a little confused!
I hardly ever go to Squaw Creek without seeing several White-tailed Bucks. There was a much larger one but he wouldn’t cooperate to have his picture taken. These two young bucks walked towards me as if to see what was going on.
Of course you’ll see a lot of hawks there too.
But….. I’ll bet you never thought you’d see one of these………
It was turning rather sharply which gives the allusion of no head. I think it’s a cool capture though! 😉
