On the 7th day they rested…

Well, it did clear up this morning, but not as early as promised. Worse, most of our favorite critters were nowhere to be found. At least nowhere I could find them. Sure, mallards were still on the river with a few gulls and even some geese, but nobody had a cute pose for us today. Meanwhile, I didn’t see any raptors, beaver, herons, deer, fishers, coyotes, etc. Sheesh!

Thus, I find myself forced to resort to old pictures I haven’t shown you yet, and the first one is of the belted kingfisher we saw on the 17th. She was kind enough to face both ways on that branch.

Here’s another shot of the beaver from yesterday as it passed a mallard hen who seemed completely unperturbed.

Here’s a shyer one of the deer trio from yesterday.

Finally, the young eagle from yesterday had its head on a swivel as it perched up there, and it kept me in the rotation, all the way across the water on the far shore, I suppose to make sure I was staying put.

Lastly, here’s one more shot of the blue heron fishing in the snow back on the 11th, this time looking down at the water.

Hopefully, that’ll tide you over until tomorrow morning when we might get lucky, and everyone will have had plenty of rest and will want to come back out to play. All we can do is hope, right?
