"Cottonwood Cove, Lopez Lake" ©
Painting very early in the morning on the edge of Cottonwood Cove the only company I had were several mule deer and about ten wild turkeys. When I was packing up my gear I turned around to see two large birds warming their wings in the morning sun. It was difficult to decide if they were Condors, Turkey Vultures or one of the other 150 species of birds that inhabit the lake. I was reminded of the lesson to keep a closer eye on what is going on around me while painting in the bushes.

Maybe one of you know what type of bird these are? They were huge!
