I've been a little remiss lately in getting some postings up. I have a few more SD photos that I thought would be good to put up. Eared Grebes and their young abounded - those chicks look like little Sith Lords, don't they? The American Bittern was quite a spot - it was at the edge of a corn field, in knee deep water (I can tell you this from personal experience) and trying very hard to be a reed or stalk so I wouldn't see him/her. Finally, the Swainson's youngsters here were fighting over food from a parent bird (also pictured below).
