Default King tide at Arrowhead Marsh

This was the second outing to the Arrowhead Marsh during a King Tide. Both outings were somewhat disappointing. The weather condition was worse than last time as the sun never emerged from the cloud and the lighting was really bad.

#1 Northern Shoveler Drake
#2 Great Blue Heron
#3 Greater Yellowlegs
#4 Horned Grebe
#5 American Wigeon Drake
