Carlos Avery is about 15 mi. North of me. With the temps over 60, I had to look to see if Spring had arrived there. You might say that it has arrived. The roads are closed.
Hopefully they will open soon.
At the North end of Carlos there is a road with private property on one side. I figured it might be open. It was, but since I did not spot any interesting birds and the mud was very deep in places, I turned around and headed for Wyoming. Below are several view of the refuge as it appears now.
No signs of Spring or birds in Wyoming either. Gotta keep looking!
