Upper Truckee Marsh
Stormy to the east, sunshine to the west, clouds coming and going. Just another beautiful Tahoe morning for birding.
Steller’s Jays squawking outted Baldy perched in the pines. As we looked up from underneath, it was time to leave…
Shorebirds stop at Tahoe on migration to breeding grounds further north. This group of American Avocets was joined by a Green-winged Teal.
Cruising downstream above the Upper Truckee came an Osprey – our first of the season. Suddenly, with a flare upward, it paused for a moment in flight, then dove and rapidly left. What???
Then Lynn spotted an immature Bald Eagle perched in the pines across the river.
