Island Time!

Jack and I spent a few hours on Antelope Island today to see what we could see. Just being there is reward enough and anything else is frosting on the cake.
Quite a few shorebirds - black-necked stilts, american avocets and western phalaropes - along with the ubiquitous gulls.  Oh, and one long-billed curlew looking a little lost in all this!
Buffalo were plentiful including a large group with young ones. A few antelope and one prairie falcon.
A fairly warm day out there but a small breeze helped and we truly enjoyed being there.

Looking north to the mainland.
