Birding At Henderson, Nevada Plus More

Good afternoon folks.  When we were at Leak Mead.  We did some birding at Henderson.
The first bird is a "Eared Grebe".  They live on ponds and lakes in the west. The bird above is a "Common Moorhen".   Is not as outgoing as the other coots.
 This bird is a "Cinnamon Teal".  They are common in western marshes.

Our stay at Searchlight Was a 4F.  Our last day there the wind blew so hard, it rock the motorhome all night.  It was so bad I thought it was going to blow motorhome over.  DesertDale slept right throw it all, until I woke him up and told him I was scared.  After he gave me a hug, he went right back to sleep.
In the morning we went to the Lake Mead and stayed in the Government Wash area.   We went birding at Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve . It is located at the Hurt R. Segler Water Reclamation facility, with some 100 acres.

DesertDale even took a couple of photos beside the birds this time around.
  The first was this  "Cottontail Rabbit".  Then he even took this photo of a "Dragonfly' setting on a post at the park..

DesertDale has pick-up 4 new types of birds.  He now has 207 different types of birds om his list.

Enjoy life.  Kitfoxgal
