Friday Outing

Here are a few more things that Cody and I saw on our outing this past Friday. Cody wanted to share some of the different things we saw with his classmates so I printed off some pictures and added descriptions for him to take back to school.

Turkey Vulture...these things are everywhere and I think they are creepy looking.

Great Blue Heron. Got lucky and saw this one just as we were leaving Crystal Springs in Fairbury.

Great Egret. I saw this mixed in with the pelicans but couldn't get a good shot. Found it again later standing alone and was able to get a few shots without scaring it off.

Red-winged Blackbird.

American Coot...also know as a Mud-Hen. Not a duck, as it doesn't have webbed feet, but instead has large lobed toes.
