Dyeyo and I spent a nice morning at the Circle B Bar Reserve a few days ago. I can’t believe our Thanksgiving Week is almost over. It feels like it’s lasted only one day!
The marsh continues to be covered in pretty yellow flowers, called Burr Marigolds. I had only taken the Beast, so Dyeyo lent me his wide-angle lens to take some landscape shots.
The best bird of the morning was this female Bufflehead, who was on the south side of the Marsh Rabbit Run trail about a third of the way up the trail. I’ve never seen a Bufflehead before. Now that I’ve seen the female, I really want to see a male. His bright head is gorgeous!
This Eastern Phoebe posed for me on the Marsh Rabbit Run trail. Dyeyo chuckled when he saw me stack my teleconverters to get a closer shot. :)
Two Double-Crested Cormorants made me laugh. One came up with a fish, and the other got jealous. He chased the fish-holder, and much splashing ensued. The original cormorant retained his fish, though!
