I went out Tuesday evening in search of owls, I didn’t have any luck, but instead I was able to find about 20 Lesser Yellowlegs, one Merlin, one Western Meadowlark, countless Canada Geese and 26 Sandhill Cranes. It was a great night for birding even though the skies are now getting dark before 9 pm.
Some of the Lesser Yellowlegs feeding,
A Lesser Yellowlegs,
As I was watching the Yellowlegs, I saw a flock of Sandhill Cranes. They were in a neighbors wheat field eating the grain,
I love these two pictures of the cranes where you can see just their heads,
To end my post I thought I should add a picture of the beautiful sunset we had last night. Though I saw many great species of birds I never heard or saw any owls,
