This is Bob and Doris’ back yard.
It is unusual to not see or hear water fowl during this time of year.
Bulrushes that survived the cold winter.
There were many red-winged blackbirds who perched on them and did everything they could to get my attention with their noisy song.
I enjoyed catching the bulrush’s fluffy seed heads in the morning or evening sunlight.
When I mentioned to Loraine that I was going to the lake to take pictures, she offered to go along.
There were trumpeter swans making a lot of noise as they came in for a landing.
They landed beyond my sight, so I did not see them in the water.
During our time there I saw a variety of ducks and waterfowl.
I am not an accomplished birder, but I think these are goldeneyes.
If I have identified any of these incorrectly, please let me know.
If I lived next to this lake, I would have to retire so I could take pictures all day.
