NASWC Bird Walk

Three of us participated in this month's bird walk and we sure did enjoy the beautiful spring morning. At about 10:30 we had one of those moments we'll remember all our lives as we watched about 500 American White Pelicans rise up in a huge kettle and then stream off heading north over our heads. One of our group described it as "magic" and I have to agree. It was a spectacular sight and here are a few pictures.

Other highlights of the walk include:
  • watching 2 Snowy Egrets chase each other on the creek (I have some pictures on Flickr here.)
  • waiting in the marsh near the Parmer Lane bridge until a Sora made a brief call
  • In that same marsh we watched a male Black-chinned Hummingbird perform a swooping back-and-forth aerial display for a nearby female.
What a morning!
