Wildlife at the Water Points

Journals of a Naturalist

4 August, 2019

This past week I was able to assist my wife in running from Marysville, Kansas to Beatrice, Nebraska along a trail that runs along the Big Blue River. I help by stopping at the trailheads in towns that are about 6-8 miles apart by trail and waiting for her to show up and refill water or grab a small snack. This also allows me to get some birding done in places that I might not ever go to otherwise.

The birding was great throughout the day as she made her way further and further north, but the diversity I saw in Beatrice was nothing like what I was able to find at some of the other stops. What Beatrice lacked in diversity it more than made up for with the experiences that I shared with the birds that I saw, starting with a lone male American Kestrel.
