Here I am on a recent visit:
It was a tad breezy that day, but we went at a time of day where the light was pretty good! Sounded like a good plan ... only ... can you see over there on the right-hand side of the pic, on the far shore? There was a guy down there!
|"I think he scared the ducks off, Mom."|
I haven't even been able to lure the ducks in like I do, so you know they're pretty skittish! Hmm. Yeah, well, I don't know what that guy was doing over there, but he was in someone else's territory. Oh, not mine. But we usually see this guy over there:
We didn't see our hawk friend that day, but I'm sure he was watching from somewhere close!
Did I mention it was breezy? Check out my floof:

We didn't see the ducks. Here are a couple pix of them from a couple days earlier:
That's the male. He doesn't have a green head like a Mallard ... so we think they are something else. If you'd like to see more pix and can help ID them, please click here to go to our FlickR set. Please leave a comment if you have any ideas!
You can't really tell colors in this shot, but Mom likes it anyway:
His head is almost a rusty color. Almost.
Speaking of rusty-colored heads ...
We'll try to get some better shots. Guess that means more trips to the Kansas Ocean! That's just ducky as far as I'm concerned! Right, Mom?!? Ha roo roo roo!
