I made a trip up to Horicon Marsh in Dodge and Fond du Lac Counties in Wisconsin today. Overall quiet, but a few of the bigger species made themselves known. Great Egrets, American White Pelicans and Green Herons were some of the highlights. A tree laying in the water with 9 Wood Ducks on it looked impressive but the photo just does not do it justice. Some common shorebirds were present but located father from Hwy 49 when I was there. It was an overcast day and light fog early on and the light cloud cover remained the time I was there till late morning, temps were warm. Images were taken on September 4, 2015.
Follow my adventures!
