I went to bed last night sure that I was going to Schoolhouse Pond this morning, but the car drove to Lake Artemesia instead. I suppose a relatively sure thing has its attractions.
The usual suspects were present, although there’s nothing usual about the Long Tailed Ducks who should be well North of here by now.
Some birds were quite cooperative, and the excellent weather was a big help.
I would not have found the Merlin without help, so thank you, Nathan.
