Three weeks ago, I was at Josey Ranch Lake for the first time. I was very impressed, how many different water birds were resting at this lake. And I was excited to see the Mute Swans, I haven’t seen for over a decade.
Today, I went back to the lake. This time, it wasn’t as windy as it was several weeks ago. It felt warmer walking around the lake. The birds were more spread out. I also saw a few different birds by the lake. There were some Red-winged blackbirds, American Coots, and American Wigeons. And I met some of my old “friends”, again: Mute Swan, Ring-billed Gulls, Double-crested Cormorants, Mallard Ducks, Northern Shovelers, and Canada Geese.
