Birding In Low Places
JUNE 26, 2012
This Snail Kite, photographed from my treacherous 1999 Honda Accord, was right outside Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, FL. This bird perenially winters on Lake Merritt, in the middle of Oakland, CA. Just because a place isn’t pretty doesn’t make it worthless to wildlife, so why not check it out? The water this Northern Pintail is in has human poo in it, which completely ruins the experience of seeing this bird. Oh wait, it doesn’t.
