Mostly I was there to take pics of the marsh, but the place never disappoints. It's a feast of sound and light and even on overcast days like this one, it's beautiful. We're still trying to identify some distinctive bird songs we heard. [Edited: Turns out it was a bunch of common snipe. Spooky.] Spring is a great time to visit.
Here's another view of the bittern.
The marshes are beautiful this year. Lots of water and lots of birds. Everything is greening up fast.
We saw a lot of Canada geese and coots, a couple of northern shovelers [so pretty!], an otter, some blue winged teals and assorted lots of other birds we didn't take time to identify.
