Near Neusiedlersee, Austria. A steppe lake that shows evidence of having completely dried at least 100 times, Neusiedlersee near Vienna is largely surrounded by reeds and is a popular destination of migrating birds. This area was quiet in terms of birds when we were there but we did see a Great Heron at a distance. It would have been a wonderful place to have a quiet canoe ride around the reeds. The differences in water color are due to the different directions I was facing.
