"Mason Valley MWA" Birding Adventure

DesertDale's A1 photo.  "Killdeer" shot on our last Birding Adventure. 
Good morning folks.  DesrtDale and Kitfoxgal went birding bright and early this morning, so we would be back before any of the "race programs came on".
The "Killdeer" can  do a very convincing broken-wing act, by flopping along the ground to lure a intruder away.  
 
 The "Wild Turkey" was once hunted out of many areas, but has been making a come-back.
 
The "Forster's Tern" nest in the west and south.  They nest in marshes, seen around any body  of water during their migration time.

 
The "American White Pelican is a very large bird, with a 9ft. wingspan.

The " American Bittern" is a shy heron.  They often remain out of sight.  They are on a declined or disappeared in many areas.
 
The "Barn Swallow"  is found in the open country side, nesting in barns or sheds or under bridges. 
They make a cup-shaped nest with mud.

Hope my readers enjoy this info as much as DesertDale has taking them.
Enjoy life. Kitfoxgal
