We went back to Sierra Hot Springs Resort, near Sierraville, for one day. After that we went to Kings Beach, on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, for a day. Which turned into a day and a half (permitting us to rent sea-kayaks) due to an Amtrak delay, which then turned into a six hour wait in Truckee due to even more Amtrak delay. I don’t much wanna take Amtrak any more.

But anyway, at Sierraville I was finally able to get good pictures of the white-faced ibises.  Or is that “ibes”?  And also, verify that they were in fact the white-faced ibis, not the glossy ibis, despite the lack of any white on any of their faces.

The ibises may not be officially glossy, but when it comes to glossiness, this magpie is no slouch:

And check out this cute baby steller’s jay — still being fed by its parents.

In Truckee, here’s a barn swallow on its nest, stuck to the side of the railroad station.

Here’s a view of Lake Tahoe with some of the waterborne recreation thereupon.
