Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s day was intended for humans but we see nothing wrong with celebrating it by featuring the Royal Couple on their wintering grounds in south Georgia!

Brooke and Colleen paid them a visit last week and found them waaaaaay out in the middle of a field foraging. Here’s a photo to show you just how difficult it was to spot them:

Can you see them? Look in the middle of the photo. Click image to enlarge

It appears they have their own pond for roosting on the left side of the photo and a fairly secluded field full of tasty treats in which to forage. Who could ask for more…

Here’s a zoomed in photo. That’s the male #4-12 on the right keeping a watchful eye, while his mate, female #3-14 eats. Let’s hope they have better luck this year nesting in Greek Lake County, Wisconsin.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
