    So, the wife and I decided to go back to the swamp ... the Zombies caught our attention with the Sora ... and also we have yet to go there in the wet spring.

    These Zombies got a really hot spot, I gotta say ... though we have always thought that having a swamp in the backyard would be top 5 on the list when buying a new home.
    Z Jr. gave us an update about the Sora ... and if the road is drivable ... much thanks you.

    Sadly we did not get to see any Sora ... just heard them.

    The Kingfisher did laugh at us numerous times, as it flew by us ... and also encountered, Northern Waterthrush, numerous Redwing Blackbirds, Virginia Rails, a Porcupine, Lesser Yellowlegs, Mallard ducks, Wood Duck couple, and other various birds we could not identify.

    The Porcupine shots did not produce anything good ... missed taking pictures of the Wood Ducks ... not the best photographic outing, but it was great just to see and hear wildlife.

    The wife here :)

    Logan - I wanted to also say thanks for giving Dennis tips about the Sora and the roads, we had a good day up there. As Dennis said we didn't see the Soras but we sure heard them, and there was lots of other wildlife to see. I didn't get as good a shot as Dennis did with that poor frog, but here's a few:

    Hmm, Jim did ask us about the Bittern as he did tell us that he was taking pictures of it yesterday ... so he wanted to know where we saw it and what it looked like ... I think he wanted to figure out if it was the same or a new one in the area.
