Redhead at Lake Artemesia

I could not have asked for better weather. By the time I met Graeme at Lake Artemesia, the Sun was trying to peek through the clouds and temps were rising rapidly.
We circled the lake a couple of times and found some nice birds, including a Redhead, which was a life bird for me.
