Our trip...

Last Wednesday, we went to Buffalo, then went on to Niagara Falls. On our way out we stopped at Montezuma Wildlife Refuge. The day was chilly and rainy, so we didn't see much. Once we got to the Canadian side of the falls, the sun came out, and we were able to walk around and see the rainbows. On our drive back Thursday, we went back through Montezuma as it was a much nicer day. Right now, the park is filled with migrating birds. We were able to watch this blue heron fishing at a distance of less than ten feet. So Cool! There are several pairs of bald eagles that nest there, but we only saw one in the distance. There were also coots and northern shovelers that I don't believe I have seen before.

It was a great "weekend in the middle of the week." We had a blast!
