… gull in breeding plumage … this is the first time I have seen a Franklin’s Gull in breeding plumage and we had some fun shooting them this afternoon. We left home at 5A, on the lake about 7A and spent about six hours roving the shores looking for waterfowl, shore birds and anything else we could find. It was a very rewarding day as we found a flock of Avocet’s in breeding plumage, a loon, heron’s, kingfishers and egrets, ducks and red wing black birds, red breasted mergansers and a slew of turkey vultures helping to keep the landscape clean of fallen critters and the leftovers from predatory attacks. The northern migration is in full swing!
It was a spectacular day to be on the lake and for the most part a glassy surface on the lake … temperatures in the 80’s by mid morning … also set a new record by not having to push off a sand bar or out of water to shallow to float the boat. The lake is up another two feet from two weeks ago and the launch ramp is barely a launch ramp at all.
So all is well in the world that matters … have a beautiful day today.
