A Year on Clear Lake-Oct 30, 2013

Egret at Work–October 30, 2013

The day began with a spectacular, vibrant sunrise, then the rain moved in. No complaints. I paid a visit to the marina–my first since the boat races of last weekend. The water was high, covering the bulkhead, and there were no birds, which is a rarity.

A lone snowy egret (above) worked the shoreline by the boat launch, and a trio of ruddy turnstones raced about, while a large flock of seagulls hunkered down in the parking lot.

A quiet day., but a good day.
