We stopped in Williams Lake on our way home from Redmond. Walked around Scout Island, checking out all the trails that we walked when Brandi wasa little girl. Saw many early returning birds, mostly water birds. Many American Coots, along with Gadwall, Mallard, Ring-necked Ducks and the first Common Loon on the lake. Most of the lake is still frozen and is still a week or 2 from opening up.
On the way home we spotted 6 Sandhill Cranes south of Quesnel and I attempted to get a picture but only got a couple of bad flight pics after they flushed when I go out of the car.
Many Red-tailed and Rough-legged Hawks on the way home and saw several Bald Eagles sitting on nests along the way.
