We had a great trip down the Ware River today! Even with eight boats we saw and heard lots of birds, like cedar waxwings, red-winged black birds, and some sort of sandpiper, among others. Inadvertently we chased a Great Blue Heron downstream for a ways, we got to see a Great Horned Owl roosting at the edge of the river. That’s one BIG owl.
The water was a bit low, but we managed to get over the few rocky spots. Well worth the trip and took a little over three hours. Thanks to Don Rich, who helped us ferry cars to the take out spot in the morning, so we were all set once we reached Creamery Road in Hardwick.
