After having family visit us from out of town for the past week, I was itching to get out with Kim to do a little birding.
A shaggy looking Rufous Hummingbird perched for a bit on a shaded branch..
Kim and I then made our way through a very overgrown path to one of a few ponds to observe some Lesser Yellow Legs, up close and personal. We were amazed to see them come so close to the shore we were standing on.
After a good little while of time at Elgin, Kim and I headed off to Reifel Bird Sanctuary to see what was in store for us on this day. Reifel did not disappoint. I was fortunate enough to observe life bird number two and three of the day.
I must say that I quite like the Cackling Goose, it’s much smaller and cuter then the Canada Gooses and a whole lot less aggressive.
Our bird full day was coming to an end as we slowly made our way to the car. We were thrilled with what we had seen and capture in our view finders and most definitly did not leave disappointed. With the return of some of our favorites, we knew that fall was certainly in the air!
Bye-bye…see you again soon!!!!
