This has not been a great year for wild flowers. In fact it has been a rotten year for wild flowers. However, the birds have come and presented themselves. I captured a few images. If anyone notices that I have misidentified any birds please tell. I know I am an incompetent birder.
Black-crowned Night Heron
The cardinal broke a cardinal rule. That rule is that birds will only come close to me when I am a long way from my camera. This time, we were sitting down for lunch and this guy showed up very close by. Very obliging. The stilt and the avocet were photographed last year.
