“People often ask me how it is that I seem to be so much at peace. There is a primary reason — and it is available to all who wish to have it. Here’s a simple prerequisite to attaining peace at that level. I invite you to observe the beasts, birds and fish and let them teach you. Let this be a daily routine and life, as you know it, will never be the same.”

Day 238 - Back To The Bird Refuge

This morning I had time for a brief outing so I headed back towards the Andree Clark Bird Refuge.  If nothing else I was hoping to get better looks at the Blue-winged/Cinnamon Teal I saw there the other day.  Well, I could not find those but in their place there were 5 Green-winged Teal, another species starting to arrive from their migration.  Over the coming weeks I will be seeing more and more species returning from their summer vacations.

They were a ways away but you can definitely see from this photo how they got their name.

This morning I found no new species for the year but I did enjoy seeing a Peregrine Falcon make a few passes over the ducks and waders, causing the expected panic.

Some photos from today:

Great Blue Heron


After today the year's total still stands at 240. 

Today I rode a total of 13 miles

More later,
