Tranquille Marsh Birding April 12, 2018

Had an hour and a bit between dropping off and picking up my daughter from an event last night.  The location was conveniently out towards the Tranquille area 🙂  I kicked up a Coyote at very close range while walking and we both were quite surprised to see each other.  First of the year birds included a single Greater Yellowlegs, an Osprey, Shovelers, Ruddy Ducks, and Wood Ducks in their usual place.  The lighting was too dark and the birds were too far for photos.
