I Shouldn't Have

But I did. I'm supposed to stay out of the sun. I don't feel the greatest either, thanks to the medicine I'm taking.

Assorted ducks, digiscoped by Alan

However, when Alan wanted someone to go to Montezuma with him yesterday I volunteered. How could I not? I love road trips with him and I love the swamp....such an amazing place.

Sleepy Green-winged Teal, also digiscoped by Alan

Hat, hoodie, sunglasses, four layers of sun block, shirt over the window when we were in the swamp, hat over my face when we were on the road, and we got it done.


Worth a bit of burning too. The swamp was full of American Wigeon, Ring necked Ducks, Redheads, Northern Pintails, a few Northern Shovelers, the usual Green and Blue-winged Teal, thousands of Canada Geese, a number of Gadwalls, Ruddy Ducks, a few Yellowlegs, lots and lots of other birds.

Pied-billed Grebe

Northern Harrier

I'll bet we saw a thousand just on the way up. it was a great time and since I've only been out in the car once in the past ten days, even just seeing the fall colors was great.

Sometimes life gives you too many risks to resist.

So glad you got out and shared the beauty with us. Things are so busy here that I feel we're missing it.
