Sky Watch Friday, March 10, 2017

Sky Watch Friday and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, March 6, 2017
The sun was trying to break through the clouds when we were at Pickwick Lake on Monday. (The background structure is the highway bridge over Pickwick Dam).

The Mallards were taking advantage of the small window of sunshine to preen their feathers.

And a Great Blue Heron was surveying his domain from a nesting platform.

Have a wonderful week-end!
