The birding has picked up a bit in the last few days, but I’m still not seeing a lot of birds except when I kayak to the southwest end of the lake. There are quite a few Blue-winged Teal.\, Northern Shovelers, Pied-billed Grebes and the like down in the cattails, but I haven’t been able to get any good photos of them. A couple of days ago I saw the first American White Pelicans down there as well.
I did come across this Osprey on a very windy morning at Bugbee the other day, though. He was having a very difficult time staying on his perch in the wind.
