Wings and Things At Watson Lake

The weather  later this week is to turn cold and wintry so a trip down the road to Watson Lake on a beautiful sunny day was in order.  Again, some of the images are typical year round residents, but I did manage to view and photograph another life bird - the Belted Kingfisher. Of all the times I have been at our lakes at different times of the  year, I guess it was the 'right time, right place' for they are listed as in range for our area but a first for me:)

                                                          Belted Kingfisher (m)

                                                                   American Coots on ice

                                                                    American Kestral
                                                          Small (warbler?) birds nest

                                                    Not sure but maybe a Brewer's Blackbird?

                                         Canadian Geese flying low over the Dells

                                                                      Great Blue Heron

Last but not least, this very small rodent was shuffling under the leaves and gave me short notice to get a image of his eye and the top of his nose:)

                                                                  Happy Birding!!

Nice shots Cynthia! What a pretty place.
I think that mystery bird is a younger Starling.

Great stuff
