Yesterday was quite annoying as I was stuck at home waiting for a Satellite TV tech. As you can probably guess, the range of time the tech could show was ridiculous (anytime between 12 & 5). Wouldn’t you know it, the guy shows at 4:59pm on the dot. This usually wouldn’t be a big deal but it was beautiful yesterday.
After being stuck at home all day, when Kara got home from work we went for a kayak float on Hart’s Lake. It was a nice night on the lake and while our bird list wasn’t huge, it included some really great birds you just don’t see that often. One of the nice treats were 2 Bald Eagles that put on quite a flight show for us. I’ve seen thousands of these birds but they never get old.
We also had more Bufflehead than normal. This is a new place for birding in Battle Creek and it’s a stop-off point for migrant Waterfowl among other great specialties. I’m not sure how long the Bufflehead will stay but these birds sure are brilliant looking so I hope to get some more views before they move on. Unfortunately, they are quite skittish but we did end up with some nice views.
We ended the evening with a very inquisitive Beaver swimming back and forth right in-front of us while we were packing up the Kayaks. It was interesting watching it hang close to shore until we left.
