I made rounds a little after seven this morning. As I drove down the dam road, I spied a couple of does eating on the south side. The buzzards on the guard rails scattered as I approached.

As I ventured up on the top of the lake property, I spied a turkey hen meandering along the road. On the bottom near one of our beaches, I ran into those funny looking avocets that are the skinniest looking critters with their turned up beaks.

Just another morning here at Buffalo Springs Lake where you never know what kind of bird or animal you might run across!

And don't forget to head out for the ultimate outdoor show on July 3rd as Buffalo Springs Lake will do their big fireworks show. It's a must see!
