Last summer I found a little lake near my home that had been there forever, I was just too absorbed in other things to pay any attention to it's existence. I'm glad I finally woke up one day, and went in search of it because I've found many wonderful, beautiful birds, fish, and interesting people there.
One of my favorite birds is the Cinnamon Teal. Partly because I see it only occasionally, and partly because it's color is so tasty.
There is no particular story with this bird. Just one of my favorites, seen at a nice close, favorite spot.
