Elkhorn Slough birds

This continues my post on Elkhorn Slough during an incredible “We Paddle, You Photo” tour with Kayak Connection. This is a sampling of the bird photos I took on this trip.

Since these shots were taken on the morning of Halloween, the last photo celebrates that “scarey” day. (It was actually a gorgeous day on the water.)

If you live near a wetland, take some time to enjoy the beauty of the water and wildlife. There are always surprises.

    We have quite a few sloughs around here, but it seems that some of our best bird watching opportunities come from the pastures that flood every winter. I do like that there’s quite a bit of wetland restoration happening, too.

  2. I love the Elkhorn Slough, due for another visit… thanks for all the photos.
