slow morning at Carlos

Yesterday morning Les picked me up & we headed out to Carlos. Our main goal was to photograph the Bank Swallows I posted about last Tuesday & Wednesday. However, we came upon only 2 pairs and, with them just shooting in and out of nesting cavities, our photo ops were limited. Maybe we should have stayed with the swallows since there wasn't much going on elsewhere.
This is some of what we did photograph:

some Sandhill Cranes at a long distance

a Song Sparrow

Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Pied-billed Grebe

You could tell it was a slow day when our picture taking was reduced to awkward, half-grown goslings, ...

... turtles, ...

... and old Coots.
