Tranquille Marsh and Tranquille on the Lake Birding September 8, 2018

I was able to spend some time there last Saturday morning.  Tranquille Marsh includes the puddle lake and surrounding habitat.  Tranquille on the Lake starts once through the entrance gate on private land.  It was a beautiful morning with clean air after another late summer of wildfire smoke in the area.
