I finally made it out to Henry Cowell to search for the Dipper but no go. I could actually see my breath around 9AM
along the river. I'm guessing that the Dipper might like to hang out there once it warms up a bit and the bugs begin to move in the water.
There were several Brown Creepers at arms length as I entered the trail near the bridge. Further up the trail on the way to Graham Hill Road was a domestic type Muscovy Duck preening in the river.
Although I got a few great shots of the Creepers, being just inches away, I wanted to share my fun pics from Spring Lakes Mobile Home.
I went in search of the Trumpeter Swans but was pleasantly surprised to find a handful of cooperative other birds with a fantastic photographic reflection opportunity. A female Hooded Merganser was a surprise but all the birds looked amazing with water colored reflections around them.
I didn't post the Trumpet Swans because I wasn't quite sure what category to put them in.
I'm hoping to go back soon as this was just too much fun!
