So today Amy and I went to one of our favorite conservation areas, Jame A. Reed Memorial CA. JAR as we call it is a 3000 acre area with 11 lakes located in a suburb of Kansas City. Its close to home and one of our favorite places to birdwatch. At the right time of year you can see almost anything, with its lakes, wetlands, fields and forests it provides ready habit to many species of birds.
The land was still largely covered with snow and there was a constant chill in the air. The trees were bare and ice still covered the lakes and ponds. Snowdrifts and snow piles were scattered along the edges of the roads. Ice fishermen plied their craft in once last hope for a winter catch.
