" Two's company and here comes the crowd!"
So kids...here we are on another exciting adventure! Well, for us getting out of the house and putting off a little gardening to see some birdies is an adventure! On this delightful day we went to an area called "THE LORAIN IMPOUNDMENT." Sounds like a place where bad birds are sent.
It's part of the Lorain Harbor AND it's on the Lake Erie Birding Trail...of the Longest Twitch fame...or something...
Well you know summer birding, not always a lot to see, but what you see, you'll see a lot of! Those wacky American Coots have been busy as bees...or more like bunnies...out there. LOTS of babies wandering aimlessly and kids tend to do. So..here ya go. Have a look...
"Great, Mister Big Feet is gonna try to fit in here!"
Cruisin' for food...
So many babies!
What was going on in that marsh?!
A proud parent with the kids in tow...
Did you know that there are sometimes bumps in the water?
Eating more...and more...and more...
"Hey! What's that guy doing over there?"
"Oh...huh-huh. I can see my feets!"
"Just watch me, not the duck!"
This is the infamous "Pushmepullyou" subspecies of the American Avocet.
I should send this to the National Enquirer with those UFO photos...hmmm...
Black Swallowtail butterflies have some mighty dangly legs!
Be vewy, vewy qwiet...We're hunting wabbits!
Hey! You got something on your beak!
House Finches are so messy!
It's a Monarch sitting still!
Trying to hide in the weeds, eh?
I found you!
(That's an Orange Sulphur.)
