Saturday along Austin's Town Lake

Saturday was sunny and warm, a nice day for a walk along what we call Town Lake, which is a formed by a dam on the (Texas) Colorado River at the lower end of town. We have walking and biking trails for several miles along the bank.

Here a great egret in the willows is craning its neck to see what I am up to

A coot near the bank is also trying to see what I am up to

A lesser scaup farther out in the water

Here we have a flotilla of double crested cormorants and a ring-billed gull

And here is a flotilla of scullers getting organized

The scullers, going away
