Fall River

Coot and young...cootlets? 

We took a day off to lead a birding trip to Whitney Preserve in Fall River County. The summer is finally catching up to the hot and dry conditions of the rest of the country, but the mornings are still cool. Since we have not explored much in the southern part of this county, it also turned into an architecture photography session. Here are a few of the day's best sights. Enjoy. Stay cool.
