Happy Thanksgiving!

I wish I had found a turkey today to show you, but I haven’t seen one since this beauty beside the pond back on July 10. Instead, there were at least two, and possibly a young third bald eagle over the river this morning, but the park was busy, so they didn’t stick around long enough for me to get close enough to capture an image. It sure was a good sign though, and I expect I’ll be able to show you pictures of them in the coming weeks and months.

Another trio I was happy to see included this red squirrel and probably two of its siblings.

The clouds were thick, and the sky was even spritzing, so the light was darn low, and my camera struggled mightily.

At the north end, I spotted one of the hooded merganser hens again, but saw no sign of the bufflehead today.

On my way south, this red-bellied woodpecker posed for just long enough.

Finally, another beaver heading home, upstream this time, posed for not quite long enough.
