Hello from Kansas!
We are camping (in a giant camper with a great heater) in Prairie Dog State park. We have seen all sorts of wildlife in the park and very few people to share it with (just how I like it!), herds of deer, prairie dogs, and lots of birds.
And by “lots” I mean that in the evening the flocks of ducks and geese create a ribbon of birds across the entire sky!
These are just the ones I was able to photograph with the kids before they froze, which didn’t take long. The high today was around 14 and the wind chills were below zero all day! The kids have been doing more exploring of the public library than the fields but the weatherman claims it’s going to get a bit warmer so hopefully we’ll be able to drag them along on a hunt or two before it’s time to go home.
In other news we have shot a few birds, but not lots. Cover for the birds is sparse this year making things tricky. Even so we’ve been eating turkey and have pheasant and quail just waiting to be cooked up for tomorrow!
Finally, just in case you were wondering, my dog is awesome…
… and very tired!
