A Thousand Words

The George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary has become my favorite birding spot as you are always guaranteed something wonderful to see. Whether it's the hundreds of mallards, adorable chickadees or just the lovely scenic views, I am never disappointed.

Kim and I had a superior birding day this past Wednesday and I thought that since a picture is worth a thousand words, I would leave the typing to a minimal and let you all view our day through just a handful of my photos. I hope you enjoy.
