Good afternoon birders,
What a beautiful day for a bird walk! Water is being added to Willow Lakes, making it even better for the waterfowl. The Virginia Rail and Sora are still being seen regularly at the eastern end of Pintail Lake #5. Pintail Lake #3 is filled with shorebirds and waders - a real treat.
Walks begin daily at 8:30 am at the Visitor's Center. Join the fun.
