Shaking a Photo Out of the Bag

by Carl Strang

I find myself caught up for the moment with ideas for blog posts, so today I’m just going to share the last outstanding photo I’d earmarked for the blog.

Male bufflehead, stream corridor marsh, Mayslake Forest Preserve.

This bufflehead appeared on the marsh earlier this spring. Last year a pair of them lingered for more than two weeks. This fellow just stayed 3 days or so and continued on his way. Not much of a story, just one of hundreds of observations in my preserve monitoring that generally don’t make the cut to be shared in this blog, but which collectively make up part of the daily story at Mayslake, and in that sense are important nevertheless.
