Good morning birders!
What a lovely morning for a bird walk. Sunny, warming temperatures energized the insects, which brought the birds. A pair of female Ring-necked Ducks were a new addition to Willow Lakes, and out at Pintail Lakes, mixed Ibis flocks and multiple sightings of male and female Belted and Green Kingfishers were thrilling. Bird Walks leave daily from the Visitor's Center at 8:30 am.
