After the sadness of seeing the dead crow, I headed over to the Josey Ranch Lake to see the birds that were still very much alive. The day was still cloudy…but the birds didn’t seem to care.
The Northern Shovelers are there for the winter as well.
The Great Egret is there all through the year.
As are the Mute Swans.
Canadian geese are not as common. I had not seen them before this year at this small lake in Texas.
American Coots and pigeons were plentiful and sometimes were in mixed groups on the shore.
The sea gulls – far from any sea – seem happier on the water.
