Getting back to normal

It is nice to have the estuary returning to it's normal state....

this was the scene this morning.  We've even had a little bit of rain, something that we haven't seen much of for the last couple of months!  There were a lot of Swallows flying around, most of them appear to be Barn Swallows.

you can just see one of those swallows behind this Great Blue Heron, one of two we saw this morning.  Could hear a Kingfisher as well.

the ducks are returning too.  Mainly Mallard but we've seen some American Wigeon as well.

over at the log bay there was a big mixed flock of....

Pine Siskin and American Goldfinch.

one thing I've noticed is the change in vegetation....I don't recall seeing as many of these Lesser Bladderwort flowers before.  There are a few of these sort of mucky areas right now, perfect habitat for Wilson's Snipe....still trying to catch one with the camera, we did spook one today.
