many, many red tailed hawks, most intimate ever for me
a noble 10-12 point mule deer buck, then later a whole herd of lesser mule deer
Northern Spoonbill, (I think) buffleheads and redheads
Sandhill crane (couldnâ€™t stop to get a good look ):
stars today were the Lesser Sandhill Cranes, hanging out in a field with the egrets.
Water levels were quite low, some ditches were dry, others were green scummy, but the ducks didn't mind.
Ditches had a lot of (I think) adolescents, chillin in the protected water till they get a little stronger.Only thing there was a lot of was Snowy Egrets, tons of those dudes, and some Blue Herons.
