Cloudy refuge day.

Lots of clouds and not a lot of great light at midday today at the wildlife refuge. Not much raptor activity - a couple of Kestrels, a couple of Harriers, a Red-tailed Hawk and a Bald Eagle. Non-raptors - 9 GBH's out fishing in a line, a group of Tundra Swans, the ubiquitous Coots and Pied Bill Grebes. But above all  - Canadien Geese everywhere. Tis the mating season for them and they cover most of the land out there.
A few shots from today.
