Thankfully today was a dry day – my boots were still wet from yesterday. The afternoon started out with a little bit of nice sunshine. A Red-winged Blackbird took the opportunity to hop down onto some low-lying vegetation to search for food. I envy the birds that can stand atop the lily pads and other vegetation, although I’m not sure what I’d do with such a skill. Still it seems fun.
The same Bufflehead was waiting for me. When you photograph the same animal for multiple days, sometimes it feels like they start to recognize you and get more comfortable. I’m not sure if that was actually happening with this Bufflehead, but it sure felt that way.
