Great Egret


A Great Egret was fishing at the lake today.  I've seen the blue ones this year already, but this was my first white one.

Enjoy!

Sunbathers Out


The turtles are back.  I saw them sunbathing, enjoying the late morning sun.   Watch the shoreline and approach quietly.  They are quite shy and spook easily.  This is my first sighting of the year.  Maybe you saw them earlier?
Enjoy!

Celebrating Snowlessness


Some of the trees and bushes have come out in celebration of the recent snowlessness.

Snow Songs


Snow still remains from earlier in the week.  Yet, these exuberant frogs are not daunted.  They sing loudly in spite of the snow.

Enjoy!

Back Again



The weather forecast is for 1 to 2 inches at the park.  Hard to believe it is back again.  Tomorrow will be warmer.

Bundle up and stay safe.

Enjoy!

Caught a Coot


The lake ice melted away over the weekend.  Caught an American Coot on camera today.  The coot is not exactly a duck - rather more like a sand crane.  

This afternoon has been cold (less than 40F) and windy - dipping below freezing in the night.  There is snow in the forecast.

Bundle up and enjoy!

Muskrats Back


I was beginning to wonder about these guys.  Unlike beaver, who store food for the winter, Muskrats have to forage for food through the winter.   

But today, two couples were flirting along the creek.

Enjoy!

Thursday Happenings



The ice now covers just over half of the lake.  A flock of gulls have found the lake a good place to find and eat fish.





Elsewhere, some of the pussy willows are beginning to flower.  Thus my first bee sighting of the year.  

Enjoy!
