Surfing Through Saint Mary's

April 16, 2014  •  1 Comment

While I was Birding in Arizona, I kept getting updates of a Surf Scoter at the Fish Hatchery over at Grand Lake St. Marys.  So the first chance I could, I drove over there to see and photograph it.  Within 5 minutes of getting there, I saw it  and had photos.  I watched it run around the pond for about a half hour then I had to be on my way.  I had just enough time to get back home and check for the Pelicans that were staying out at Killdeer Plains.  The wind and temperatures had them socked in back behind an island.   Oh well, maybe next time. :-D 

As I was heading back towards LaRue, I also got to see some Lapland Longspurs in breeding plumage over on Washburn Rd.  Pretty neat. :-)  A few of the pictures are  below, just click on the image to go to the gallery to see more.
