A small single engine plane flew directly over the refuge and the geese scattered temporarily. It has the same effect as a Bald Eagle flying over, which provided a good opportunity for me.
I took over 450 shots yesterday if anyone cares here is a link to about 165 of the best. It includes some more closeups of a very pretty Ring-necked Pheasant and the Egret.

Thanks for looking Dan. As soon as they leave in Feb/March I find myself counting the months until they return in Nov.
