Yesterday we went back to Hagg Lake. I was hoping to add three more species to my county big year list, but I only got one more. That darn Eared Grebe just won't cooperate!
County bird #182 was a Greater Scaup that I didn't get that 'great' of a look at. Looking at birds three miles (I'm exaggerating) away with a scope is pretty ridiculous. I am learning what kind of birder I really am.
me and the scope
The best part of the trip for me, besides the sunshine was the plethora of fungi! There were so many juicy and alien species popping up in the woodland.
Elsewhere mushrooms have been popping us and here are a few I photographed.
