Meanwhile, across the street and out in the lagoon there is always some kind of bird action.
This time of the year rafts of Northern Shovelers dabble and dip and scoop with their over sized bills.
Male and female - synchronized swimmers.
My favorite, the Kingfisher, watches while keeping an eye out for a catch.
This Great Blue Heron has just made a catch, one of many he'll make each day.
And perched on a log, an eagle watches
as a Green Winged Teal dabbles in the rich lagoon mud, eating not so fresh food.
