The American Pelican is so majestic and huge as it flies over Lake Estes. Isn’t he gorgeous?
I was just commenting to Phil last week that I hadn’t seen any Cedar Waxwings this year at Lake Estes. And then, there was one Cedar Waxwing flitting from tree to tree right in front of us.
Such a beautiful and colorful bird! Love the red on his wings and the yellow on the tip of his tail.
Phil and I were walking down by Lake Estes when we saw this little duckling swimming merrily along the shore. We both looked at each other and said, “Where is his mother?” “Why aren’t there any other ducks around?”
I sure hope he found his family or they found him. He was so cute and seemed so happy swimming along.
The Double-crested Cormorant reminds me so much of back east. As we kayaked along the shores, the Double-crested Cormorants were everywhere!
They were so much fun to see as they dove for food or lazed on the rocks with their wings spread to dry.
Have you ever seen a Double-crested Cormorant?
