This is the second year in January of easy accessibility to our nearby lakes, and the trails leading to them due to lack of snow pack. It is usually very icy and treacherous. I was thrilled to learn that birder and blogger friend Chris Rohrer was in town and we agreed to meet at Willow Lake to do some birding. I was so very happy to meet him and he made me feel comfortable and at ease meeting for the first time. We trudged through the tall grass to get as close as we could to the shores edge. It was very muddy, our shoes were caked with it and other unnamed goo, but the end result was worth it! Chris took beautiful images of Tundra Swans and Ross's Geese and I was happy to get the former as another life bird:)
