Feeling more spring-y all the time! It was a little dreary today with the clouds, but the temperature was quite nice, as were the birds.
On the way up to meet the group, I enjoyed watching a group of 6 cormorants swimming around together, catching things, and generally being gorgeous. It helped that I had to look past a kinglet to do it. Ah, the riches of spring! Then I saw the coot sitting out on a rock so I got to see it's feet, I'm a little heartbroken that the pictures didn't come out. Coots have amazingly awesome feet!
Met up with the group, and we started seeing cool stuff right away. We saw the first common yellow-throat of the year, and as usual he eluded my camera. Beautiful little guy though. Lots of black-crowned night herons. And some fancy sparrows.
Every time I see a towhee my day gets better.
