Spring time in Waterloo

On my first day off of school I ventured to my usual haunts. Except this time I had time to linger and take some photos!
Luckily there were also a bunch of new migrants in :)

Believe it or not, there is still ice on the lakes/ponds here!

Common Goldeneyes are unusual on the inland lakes of Waterloo, so a group of 5 of them stood out.

This male Redhead wasn't associating with the female Redhead whatsoever.

Song Sparrows were everywhere.

Laurel Creek may not be frozen, but it sure is drained:

Hopefully the expansive mud will attract more of these birds:

A few teal were very alert to my presence:

This Fox Sparrow was very boisterous with its beautiful song:

Check out a video of it singing here:
