Favorite Clapper Rail

I was at the Palencia Boardwalk again this morning for sunrise pictures. I love being at the marsh at sunrise. The flat landscape makes the sky appear more dramatic and sometimes the colors can be unbelievable. As the sun comes up, the birds start… Continue Reading “Favorite Clapper Rail”

Food Poisoning
