McKenzie Marsh closeup
Saturday morning my husband drove to Mckenzie Marsh (Aurora) to look for birds. Well, most of the birds were in hiding but the end-of-June wildflowers were lovely and certainly worth photographing.
Largest square: red-winged blackbird. Moving clockwise: hawkweed (Hieracium caespitosum), oxeye daisies (Leucanthemum vilgare), bittersweet nightshade (Solanum dulcamara), purple vetch (Vicia americana), and bird'sfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus).
Please note: I have included the botanical names because the common names vary from place to place but the botanical names stay the same.
