Carlos Avery, Friday, April 27

I spent much of yesterday planting seedlings & bushes. By late afternoon I was bushed. But it was sunny, 65 degrees, with a light breeze. How could I stay home? Carlos Avery is the place to go if you are tired since you can do your birdwatching from the car.

I was greeted by a Common Loon some distance out in Pool 9. He would dive for a few seconds, then come up; every third time or so he would lift himself out of the water with this wing display and then start all over again.
