Just Coots

Today I did less birding but did check out a local Canon City wetland and pond area. I found a Marsh Wren, they are fairly common in marshy areas here. Nearby was this pair of American Coots hanging out in some pond vegetation as they often do.

There were several common Great Blue Herons flying around. Though they tend to be rather sensitive to disturbance here, the heron in this photo felt safe as it was about 200 feet away and up a tree.

For the third day in a row I have seen or heard flocks of Franklin's Gulls flying over my house as they migrate through the area. Yesterday I was able to find them visually as they flew in and out of some clouds.
