Yesterday, Mike and I took a day trip up to Squaw Creek. Squaw Creek is located in the NE corner of Mo and we make our annual trip up to see the waterfowl migration. Yesterday we witnessed over 200,000 Snows and Blues which you see in the picture below. We also saw thousands of Mallards, Pintails, Shovelers, Teal and several Canvasbacks. We also saw 6 American Eagles and I was able to add the Green Heron to my life list of sightings. We also saw about 20 deer. I absolutely love "birding" and wish I could spend more time enjoying the wonders of nature. We just had a fabulous day at Squaw Creek and all that it cost us was gasoline money.
