The lighting really hasn't been that great to take pictures in the morning at Lake Murray, so I haven't been taking that many. Today, I mostly photographed the domestic waterfowl, so if you were wanting to see a lot of wild birds, I only posted a few wild waterfowl photos and an osprey.
First, we start with "One Foot" who was resting in his favorite spot.

Bigboi also likes the little girl.
Baby Blue is (on the bottom right) is almost as big as the Pekins now. That is Pepper at the top who is so much smaller.

This male redhead was watching her from a distance. I wonder if they're the same redheads I see in this area every year?
Here is a ruddy duck:
And, it looks like the osprey are building up their nest:
