Another pretty day! Back to the reservoir, to see what I can see.
Once at the reservoir, I saw lots of ducks! Here's a gorgeous gadwall, looking incredibly sweet as she tries to hide behind this inadequate branchlet.
Here's a bufflehead, I still love them!
The numerous ruddy ducks sometimes come over and make sure I get pictures of them. They are so cute and sassy!
Here's a female hooded merganser, loving her crest, as well she should.
Here's the mighty hunter with a little..... crawfish? Something along those lines. Hahahahaha, his crest is going crazy when he shakes that thing around!
Here he is gliding regally away.
Once again on the edge was a kinglet, only the ruby crowned female this time.
And I finally saw this northern shoveler before heading home. Hahahahaha, they crack me up.
All day there were lots of blue jays - I guess it was a bumper crop this year! I saw several of them foraging on the ground, often with starlings and/or juncos. The pictures were not spectacular though.
