The rains of the day before left the game lands wet and soggy. We stopped on our way east for a few finds.
Before we left the trail to search for the caches, Ali made a comment that the fields looked like great habitat for bobolinks. I was shocked to see couple appear in the field. I believe this was only the second time I've seen these birds. I do wish I had captured a better image. It's hard to distinguish their colors unless looking from the side.
The salamanders were happy in the woods on this wet day.
Our walk in the woods ended at a beaver lodge with a nice view of the water.
