Old picture from spring 2014 but a gorgeous view of one of my favorite spots.
Many colonies attached to an underwater tree.
Three hawks seen circling around one another
Seen with 5 ducklings
2 to 3 seen in close proximity. Different sizes ranging from one foot to over three feet.
Seen feeding young in pond. 2 different females also seen frequenting territory
Seen gathering materials for nest and building nest. Was not disturbed by presence if cows and cows did not seem to mind bird
Male and female seen together. When a red winged black bird approached female went inside of hut while male flew in circles over head
Thought to be toads. Swimming on large groups and not startled by presence
Seen calling in trees at night between 7:30-10:30
Found in a wooden shack. Had many legs that seemed like spider legs. Would not leave area around eggs
Swimming in water where grass protrudes. Would only have head sticking out.
It was pecking at the ground but quickly stopped when it heard us coming.
A female bird was calling when she felt threatened by us.
