What a fantastic day (4.27.) we had at Crex Meadows Wildlife area near Grantsburg, Wisconsin. If you haven't been there yet - it's a paradise for birds and other wildlife. http://www.crexmeadows.org
And we are so fortunate to be able to watch it all. We saw several pairs of Trumpeter Swans and they were all very friendly and one pair did a little courtship "dance".
There was still ice on some of the lakes though we had temperatures around 73 F.
Lots of birds - geese, ducks, swans, cranes, loons... we missed the pelicans that passed through 2 days prior.
One of the highlights was a Blanding Turtle sitting in the middle of the road soaking up the sun's warmth. I have never seen one before. She was very friendly and let us take her picture from all angles.
More to come in the next post.
