Wildlife Area - Part 2
Yellow-headed Black birds are real insect-mosquito hunters and spend a lot of time
along the roadways in the grass. I shot several photos in the grass, but couldn't get
a good full shot until they perched in the open.
Only two shots each before they took flight. Great Blue Heron (Photos two and four).
Center photo is a Blue-winged Teal. Both outside photos (One and five) is a
Black-crowned Night Heron.
Swimmers, waders and shorebirds are all in abundance at Cheyenne Bottoms. Wood Ducks are some
of the more colorful, of which I had a pair in my own backyard earlier this year (See Touch of Spring).
American White Pelicans - Quite a few of these, but far out on the water required us to stretch
the camera capability in both optical and digital telephoto mode.
