I took the kayak out onto Meredith yesterday morning and paddled around for a couple of hours. It was cool and there was a little fog and no wind. Here’s a few photos from the lake.
The little Clark’s Grebes chicks are nearly grown. I took these photos before the fog had lifted near Martin Canyon
Juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron
A few of the dozens of Great Blue Herons on the southwester end of the lake. I counted 71 but could have missed some as they were in and out of the cattails. Ring-billed Gulls in the background.
There were also American Avocets.
Juvenile Red-headed Woodpecker
These Baird’s Sandpipers were at Lake Palo Duro last week
Also at LPD were a few Stilt Sandpipers,
and a Ring-billed Gull
