A Bever, A Buck, Some Ducks, and a Big Surprise...

Even though the beaver kits did not make an appearance today, it was a wonderful morning for wildlife watching. One of the adults made several trips gathering limbs to add to the lodge…








While waiting for beaver activity a family of Mallards passed by…



Followed shortly by a Wood Duck family…


I was visited by this young buck. He alternated feeding on one side of the road and then the other…



I went to my usual turn-around spot and saw this Eastern Pewee; at least that’s what I think it is…


The big surprise of the morning came as I was passing a hay field and spotted this Coyote…



It is hard to describe my excitement upon seeing this elusive carnivore during the day and having enough light to snap a few photos…



Now my dilemma will be whether to watch for the beaver kits or the coyote. Actually, not a bad problem to have.
