Photo essay: A snowy morning

It was lightly snowing, but I simply couldn’t resist visiting Bayou Meto Wildlife Management Area. I had the trip in mind for several days and, well, I did wake up early to take a drive with Izzie.

I was the only person out, which was fine by me. I saw plenty of birds. Here’s some of what I saw:

I’ve seen plenty of Northern Shoveler’s, but the ducks have always been just floating like this.

I finally saw the backside of a Northern Shoveler as the duck flew away. Gorgeous coloring!
