Great Egret at Lake Artemesia.

It’s been a very slow few days. I’ve managed to get out each day, but lousy weather and a lack of birds  didn’t give me much to post.  I tried Artemesia today, and ran into Graeme. We circled the area for a few hours and didn’t really do all that well, but I’m posting what I’ve found lately.

I expect things to pick up very soon.
