Pied Billed Grebe at Lake Artemesia.

We got a little taste of Spring this morning. Clear blue skies and temps in the 60s were a welcome change. There weren’t a lot of birds on the lake, but the variety was good. Migration is just beginning, so I expect to do better very soon.

Geese and ducks are present in decent numbers, and there’s more bird song in the woods.
