|"This way, readers!"|
Gotta love a helpful pack-o-Pelicans! Errr... American White Pelicans.
OK! Cheyenne Bottoms! The bird we saw in most abundance was Egrets! Yes - Egrets! We saw a few. But then again, too few to menti-- ... right. Sorry. We've done that one before!
We saw Snowy Egrets ...
|"Heeeeeere, fishie, fishie, fishie...."|
And Great Egrets ...
"So am I!"
And Snowy Egrets hanging out with Great Egrets ...
|"We Snowies are every bit as great as you guys."|
For the record, Cam and I side with the Snowy!
We also saw some Double-Crested Cormorants:
And a tiny Pied-Billed Grebe:
We think he was a young one, based on the white on his throat and that he didn't have a stripe or band across his bill.
We also saw this Great Egret crashing a party:
|"Hey, everyegret! What's going on?!?"|
Mom was very happy that this Snowy Egret did a nice, long "sit/stay" for her:
|"You DO have a fishie or a froggie or something for me, right, Camera Lady?"|
Hmm. I don't believe she did! We should pack some next time!
Finally, no trip to Cheyenne Bottoms or Quivira would be complete without spotting at least one Great Blue Heron:
|"Why ARE rubber chickens funny?"|
He looks like he's thinking deep thoughts, doesn't he? He must read great literature or something.
Well, as I said, this wraps up the latest adventure! We hope you enjoyed coming with us!
