Got off a little early today from work so headed over to Holmes Lake to take a quick walk around before it got too hot. I was looking for the water lilies but didn't find any. Wonder where they are this year?? Saw a lot of singing birds though, mostly a couple meadowlarks. Also a Dickcissel and what I think may be a Great-Tailed Grackle (not the same as the common Grackle). I'm checking on the bird ID to make sure. Will edit if needed. And of course the ever too common Red-winged Black bird.
Edit....the one that I thought was a Great-Tailed Grackle is a female Common Grackle.
