I haven’t been out birding or kayaking since last week. Work, weather, the holiday weekend, and getting vehicles ready to hit the road for a little vacation have kept me busy. We’re going to the mountains for a few days to hike, take pictures, and hit a few breweries. Here’s some more pictures from last week’s Kayak excursion on Meredith to tide you over.

Great Egret on a reconnaissance run. He took off from the shallows, flew over us and landed in nearly the same place.Great Egret (55) (1024x654) Great Egret (59) (1024x678) Great Egret (60) (1024x735) Great Egret (63) (1024x645) Great Egret (65) (1024x538)

I think these are Forster’s Terns, maybe juveniles or non-breeding adults.Forster's Tern (3) (1024x684) Forster's Tern (4) (1024x602)
