Yesterday's Drive-About

I had cabin-fever pretty badly yesterday, so in spite of the intermittent freezing rain and slushy, slippery roads, I went out to do some birding.  It is time to resume my frequent patrol of my 'usual route' which takes me out to Rafferty Dam/lake, and to the lake at Boundary Dam.

The sky was the same grey-white as the snow on the ground.  Difficult for photography (at least, for me it is).  

But here are a couple of shots from the day.

A young Eared Grebe

A large (probably female) Great Horned Owl

There are still huge flocks of Snow Geese around.

  1. Looks cold all right. Methinks the migration route for some waterfowl continues to shift west. I've seen very few this fall...:(
