There is a deck overlooking a marshy field at my workplace, and this is where I eat lunch most days. The area is plentiful with killdeer, red-winged black birds, yellow-headed blackbirds, sparrows and meadowlarks. Currently, there is a resident sandhill crane couple with a chick. I occasionally see a pronghorn or two on the hillside adjacent to this area as well. All while eating lunch. What a gift!
This evening I thought I would share some images of birds that I've had the pleasure to watch and photograph in various places. Hope you enjoy them.
