This Week at Lake Meredith

I’m seeing lots of migrants through Hutchinson Co., now, and some summer birds have arrived as well. Virginia Rails and Soras can be heard almost daily in the marshes below the dam in Spring Canyon. I saw Say’s and Eastern Phoebes at Spring Canyon and at McBride and Blue-winged and Cinnamon Teals on the Stillin Basin and in the main lake as well. Turkey Vultures arrived last week and some of the permanent residents like Wild Turkeys have been really strutting their stuff around lately.

Here’s a few photos of the birds I’ve been able to get this week.
