Hello and Happy Mother's Day to all you that are mothers!
Mom and I and Murphy had bagels this morning and then went out to the wildlife refuge. The birds were everywhere - herons, avocets, stilts, terns, yellow-headed blackbirds, grebes, coots....and on and on! And of course, the ubiquitous Canadian geese perpetually honking.
The Forster's tern is a fascinatingly agile bird - here's a couple of shots as he hovered overhead looking for food!
