A Few Miscellaneous Photos From Late Spring

I’ve been pretty busy at work the last month or so and haven’t posted much. I have been birding, though and so here are a few photos. The best areas for birding in the last month or so have been the farms and pastures north and south of us. The playa lakes are full and wheat is ripening and in some cases already harvested, so there is abundant food and water.
