Just Pix!


Red-winged Blackbird

I checked in on the prairie parcel of Pheasant Branch Conservancy for a couple of hours before work this morning. Nothing new to report, but many great opportunities to watch and photograph birds and wildflowers. The chats are still present and can be heard singing near the springs, but they're too far away to get a decent photograph. It's going to be an early morning tomorrow and I don't have much to say at the moment. I'll save it for my next post!
