Got some outside time this weekend by camping at Jackson Lake. The lake is
pretty full of water. Lots of *pelicans*! Boat activity was heavy. Friday
night, we heard two *eastern screech owls* trilling and four *great-horned
owls* calling, all after midnight (north end of lakeside campground). Did
not hear the screech owls Saturday night.
The best treat was five *long-billed curlews* foraging in and near the
prairie dog colony to the north and west of the Fox Hills campground area.
One flew right over our car!
Also nice was a large flock of *snow geese*, a small flock of *sandhill
cranes*, and a couple of *Bonaparte’s gulls*.
