A trio of Northern Shovelers found themselves a spot a the edge of the marsh for a quick afternoon nap in the sun! Nothing like a nap in the sunshine!
The other day I posted a photo of this field with the Golden Ears Mountains highlighted against a rusty gate. Today this is the same field. No mountains today, as it’s rained all day. But, birds galore. This flock of Gulls, about 90 of them were sitting in the field until we drove up, then they took off. Also on the field were a bunch of ducks. Find the Mallards here! Also in the trees theres about 35 crows and over the other way a Bald Eagle. So it was productive!
As the sun sinks into the distant horizon the last light illuminates the water and the Gulls have a last fly before roosting for the night. Storm clouds threaten from the east with Blain, Washington in the background.
