The first birds I noticed when arriving at Lake Contrary this morning were the Pied-billed Grebes and American Coots. The grebes swimming around randomly and diving in search of some small minnows. The coots were in groups moving around, bobbing their heads and picking at food items floating on the surface of the water. Several American Crows were flying around overhead, uttering their caws every now and again. As I drove around the perimeter of the lake an American Kestrel flew off of a roadside...

This summer I went with my family to see wolves in Sierra de la Culebra. We were in the mountain two dawns and two sunsets to see them. We stood with scopes on a track on the hillside that overlooked the valley.
The first sundown was unsuccesful but the dawn of the next day was successful. At about 8 am four wolves appeared in a firewall between the forest and the scrubland. They stayed resting in the firewall for good time.
And the wolves went out in the...

After a long dry spell here in Missouri, this morning it finally rained. It was very welcomed as things were really getting dry here. This should brighten things up and perhaps help the wild things breathe a sigh of relief. I hope to get down to the oxbow lakes south of town and see what avian life forms may be around. Perhaps I will go out Thursday or Friday and look around.

At the tip of Illa ostral I began to see whimbrels. They were typical of this place, but I had not seen them until this moment
A couple of years ago there were many curlews and almost no oystercatcher. Now there are a lot of oystercatchers and less whimbrels.
I just saw one sandpiper. Suddenly one of the four egrets who were on the beach flew me out apparently to sea; but I realised later that only was circling the islet.
And so I walked back to...
