Driving the backroads we often come across some amazing sightings of birds. On the old hiway from Burlington to Alger, WA we saw flooded fields and huge flocks of Pintail and Mallard Ducks - more Pintails than Mallards. The two ducks often flock together.
When the fields flood there are lots of temporary ponds for the ducks. We've had a very rainy winter this year.
Across the road from the flocks of ducks were some of the Tundra Swans that over-winter here. We usually see them a little farther south so it was a treat on this sunny day to find them.
Time to go - bye!
