After a little while, we decided to walk across the street to a small pond in a marshy area to see what we could find. We saw an Egret, a House Finch and a family of Killdeer. The finch was sitting on a power line and as a matter of principle I don't post 'bird-on-a-wire' pictures on this blog, though the male's plumage was amazingly beautiful! The Killdeer were a little more accommodating, and I got a few pictures of the adults and chicks.
Thanks Jeff and Luci for the unique photo opportunities!
