Today, we awoke to lots of snow covered trees and very cold temperatures. But, before the snow, we explored a different lake and area near our home.
Yesterday, was a very nice overcast day, with a few sprinkles. On our nature explorations, we followed a Belted King Fisher from tree to tree and watched him dive into the water looking for fish. He came up empty handed, but I’m sure his persistence paid off.
The landscape is very nice to photograph in this area. It is home to wood ducks, willow trees, ring neck ducks, geese, and others. The belted king fisher was a nice surprise, but I wish he would have allowed us to get closer to him. My son was excited to check mark it in his bird book.
