I drove out to Mud Lake and Market Lake today in search of spring arrivals. Spring is by far my favorite time of year, but it is so slow to arrive in these parts. It’s slowly starting though. Snow Geese have arrived in force (I saw tens of thousands), Sandhill Cranes, Mountain Bluebirds, and Ducks of all species are here, and Red-winged Blackbirds are vigorously defending territories.
Anyway, it was a great morning. I found a lot of fun birds and photographed a few dead catfish.
