Jackson Bottom Walk

We took a walk over at Jackson Bottom Wetlands a short time ago. It was a gorgeous day and we saw 2 new Life List birds! Here are a few of the photos from the walk.

Sorry that I have not been posting any photos lately. We have just been extremely busy with work and home. We are still watching all of the birds, I just haven't made the time to blog about it. Hopefully, that will change soon. Thanks for stopping by!

An American Bittern! Life list bird!

A Green Heron! Another Life List bird! We tried to get a closer photo but he wasn't cooperating at all.

One of the many swallows at Jackson Bottom. It was warm that day and quite a few of the birds were panting.

We found a small flock of Cedar Waxwings towards the end of our walk. Such awesome birds!

I can never post just one photo of these guys.
