Morning Dove at Quiet Waters Park.

It’s been a longish dry spell for decent bird images. I’ve been getting out every day, but I’m not finding any migrants even though I know they’re around.

I got to Lake Artemesia yesterday, and did better than at other places, so that will have to do.

This year seems slower than previous years.

There’s been an Osprey nest on this ballfield light for at least 7 years, and probably many more.
