I was treated to a variety of artistic treasures at the Horicon Marsh today. This Common Gallinule looks like his beak has been carved from exotic wood and a Master Painter added white brush strokes of paint as a final touch to this masterpiece.
Feathers of the Tree Swallow look metallic in the sunlight. His black eye patch adds a touch of mystery.
The American Coot chicks are growing up! I think they look most beautiful at this stage in their development.
When this Trumpeter Swan walked through the water, the ducks scooted off, reminiscent of the parting of the Red Sea.
I wonder if swans get sore necks?
Jewel toned feathers add to this female Wood Duck’s beauty.
