The Killdeer were the cutest little guys just barely looking over the salt grass.
Then the Tundra Swans sitting in a pond just inside the entry gate - normally they are miles away making a lot of noise. Looked like several juveniles in the group.
The Sandhill Cranes - talk about luck! I pulled over just past the rangers HQ to let another vehicle go by and sat there for a minute just looking around, a bit dreamily! I suddenly realized that there were cranes walking slowly just about 60 feet away! They were on the passenger side of the truck so had to do a bit of squirming and jiggling to get into position to take a few photos.
Finally the GBH's at the rookery - you can make up a dozen stories for each activity that they do!
