Welcome to JELLEN IN THE BLACK HILLS ~ My digital journal, where I highlight the natural wonders around me ~ the birds, beasts, botany, and beauty ~ in a National forest in SW South Dakota ~ and sometimes beyond.

More Water Fowl From Wed.
These two female wigeons were found on the E side of Bear Butte Lake on Wed.
The first thing I saw on the lake was this gaggle of greater white-fronted geese. They are fall migrants to this area.
As usual, a killdeer I spotted was zig-zagging around trying to avoid the camera.
There were several white pelicans and cormorants hanging out together at the S end of the lake. I didn't get too close but they still spooked and several flew away to the center of the lake. Sorry about that guys.
