Emiquon Wetland Wildlife

In May, I stopped at several pull-offs at Emiquon. At the Wetland pull-off, I found Blue Flag Iris and Rough-fruited Cinqfoil in bloom.

Farther north, across from County 9 Road that leads to Dickson Mounds Museum, a pair of Black-necked Stilts were foraging for food, along with a Red-winged Blackbird, Blue-winged Teal, Mallards, and many, many American Coots.
