We saw lots of birds in the marshes including this Green Heron.
The next day we went to our usual birding destination and we found that the lotus was abloom. I just love this wildflower. It is beautiful in any stage of its life. In the photo below you can see each stage from bud to the seed pods.
There are still lots of field birds apparent even though they are beginning to flock up. Breeding season is about to come to an end. It just doesn't seem possible. This female Dicksissle has a grasshopper in her mouth. No doubt going to take it to a nestling. We had lots of fledglings being fed this weekend.
