A lot of my photos are darker, and that's because it was cloudy and rainy and the ones at the beginning especially we were trying not to get our lenses wet lol I brought small plastic garbage bags to put our lenses in and cameras and just had a hole at the end to stick the lens out!
This first image is of the 1st lake...
This one was the cliffs near by the 2nd lake...
And this is a 3rd lake we went to, but I didn't see much there...
We started our adventure at a nearby lake, there were 10 little goslings, possibly from 1 or 2 pairs of Canada Geese... as 4 adults were with them.
We came back to this lake at the end of our trip and saw the goslings again!
There were also goslings at this lake, I have not seen goslings since 2009 and so I was thrilled! lol 6 little babies.
The next lake we went to was about 20 minutes away and there were 21 babies (I think) with 6 adults, so possibly 3 pairs.
More Geese at the lakes...
More Ducks at the lakes...
Mallards (male is colorful, female is duller)
Canvasbacks (Both males)
Blue-winged Teal Pair
More birds, a lot of these were taken from in the car as it was raining... we saw so many western meadowlarks, red-winged black birds, yellow-headed black birds, grackles, robins and tree swallows. 5 Hawks, 3 Pheasants (2 males, 1 female), 2 northern flicker woodpeckers, 1 muskrat, 8 deer in a field and a lot of other really cool birds!

Boy they have a WEIRD song... sounds like they are dying. At the bottom of this page you can hear it.
