First I'll share another bird I saw in Reno at the Swan Lake
HERE's my previous blog showing the other birds I saw there.
Below is a cute little American Avocet, a life bird for me!
I discovered a new Wetland area very close to my home, I spent a couple hours there yesterday.
I heard this wonderful little Wren for a long time and could never get a picture, the grasses are all above my head in most areas so unless the bird perches in a tree or on the top of one of these Cat Tails I can't see them. Then finally this little one was kind enough to perch on a spot I could see from the walk way, stayed there singing away long enough for me to get several good pictures!
Then he/she grabbed a bit of nesting material before flying away.
Below is a different Marsh Wren singing up a storm.
Towards the end of the walk I saw this Bald Eagle coming in and landing, fortunately I was in a spot I could fairly easily move to a spot I could zoom in on it taking a drink!

This little Savannah Sparrow was the first bird I saw as I was entering the wetlands.
So happy I got such a charming shot!
