Today I am presenting the final images that I plan on sharing from the trip that Steve and I made to Quivira NWR way back this past May.

These Hudsonian Godwits were a pleasure to watch.  See below for a shot of them in rest.

Surprisingly, we seemed to have more Yellow-headed Blackbirds than Red-winged, but we did have plenty of Red-winged to watch as well.

No trip to the grasslands is complete without a Quail…

We watched this female/juvenile Yellow Warbler take a bath in one of the creeks that run through the reserve.

What a collection of birds, photos and memories these few days in the Kingdom of Quivira provided.  We can’t wait to visit again.
