May Day

Say's Phobe catching an insect

We saw our first Say's Phoebe at Lake Estes on May 1 this year and what fun to watch him up close, hovering above the ground and water then dropping down quickly to catch a tasty insect morsel.

The lone Pied-billed Grebe is still at the Lake and we wonder if he will move along or stay with us for the summer. I love the way he sinks when threatened!

The Pied-bill Grebe can rapidly adjust buoyancy to sink out of sight
We also enjoyed seeing both varieties of the cute Yellow-rumped Warbler, the "Myrtle" and the "Audubon" (pictured below).
