It wasn't raining Monday morning so I drove up to Ridgefield NWR to take a look around. Birds were singing and the sun was peeking out amoungst the clouds.
A few ducks, including these Ring-necked Ducks, were still hanging around.
Lots of blackbirds in the cattails.
Many swallows were flying overhead.
I could hear lots of Common Yellowthroats and Marsh Wrens singing. These Marsh Wrens really blend in!
I hesitate to even try to ID this bird, but here I go....Greater Yellowlegs??? Am I right?
A sculptural perched heron.
Oh love these sexy guys! Common Yellowthroats are such striking birds.
I spent 3 hours driving through the refuge and had a great morning.
