Birds of Willow Lake-Wed. Wings

Yellow Warbler 

                                                                        Summer Tanager                 

                                   Double Crested Cormorant in treetop nest- Willow Lake

                                                               Great Blue Heron

So far, my outings at Willow Lake have been rewarding.  I have been able to photo (and hopefully correctly identify!) birds that occupy this area of Prescott during the summer months. Willow Lake has been severely depleted by the on-going drought and I do notice other birds such as Double Crested Cormorants and Great Blue Herons flying to other nearby lakes, fishing for food for their young and bringing it back to their nests at Willow Lake. The monsoon rains are forecast for this week and it will be a most welcome arrival for all :)
