Crex Meadows

It's been a few days since my last post, but in that time I've had a pretty good run on seeing a number of new birds for the year, and even a few for my life list. I went up to Crex Meadows with my parents on Friday and we saw a number of different ducks and grebes. It was not the best weather for photography, so I didn't get a lot of good shots, but they are certainly good enough for identification purposes. I'll post what I got over the next few days.

All three of these birds are my first photographs of them which is pretty cool. Also, the Ruddy Duck and Red-necked Grebe are life birds for me!
