Circle B Bar Reserve – Birdwatching 11/28/08

Today my husband and I went to the Circle B Bar Reserve and here is a list of what we saw. We were there from about 9-11 am and it was clear and 54 degrees when we got there. It warmed up nicely and was a gorgeous day. My ID’s of some of these were greatly helped when we were joined by Reinier (one of the photographers I use -Wildstock) about half way through our birdwatching trip. The list below is from a report I made to ebird.

We definitely had a great time birdwatching today. Reminds me to be thankful for all the great and wonderful creation that God has created.

Psa 111:1-4 KJVR
(1) Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
(2) The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
(3) His work is honorable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth forever.
(4) He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.

  1. What a blessed day! You had two hours of sheer delight. The psalm you chose perfectly represents the praise that must have bubbled up from within. To God be the glory!
    I’ll have to check out the Circle B Bar Reserve.
