This was the first time I’ve seen hooded mergansers at Circle B Bar Reserve.

It was a rare beautiful morning in late January. This winter seems to be the year of the icky weekends. I know, it could be worse. I could actually be living up north where it SNOWS so I can’t complain. There’s still hundreds of white pelicans at the park but they usually stay pretty far away, across the lake. You have to catch them flying high overhead. It was a quiet morning but a perfect morning for a long walk.

Excellent photo set. Eagles make their winter home in our area as well. What majestic birds to watch. Happy Skywatching.
