Anyhoo there I was doing my patrol duties around the lake and stopped to take a little rest on the dock and look what appeared. Remember the juvenile gallinules we saw last week - well today we saw one the adults with the bright red beak. We also saw this poor old ibis - who looks like he is resting on one leg - but sadly his other leg was actually broken and he was having to hop on one foot. (We stopped in MY park ranger office on the way home to let them know about him and they were going to send someone out to check on him and see if they could help him). And lastly we saw of pair of these turkey vultures - those were big mean looking dudes. They both stood about 2 foot tall - yikes - we didn't like the look of them or the way they were looking at us - especially the one up on the roof top!
