Critters

Finally after days of not seeing any critters on our walks along the Red River, Chester and I found a nice variety yesterday.  🙂

There was a Robin, so high up at the top of a tree that I didn’t know what it was.  I actually thought it was a much larger bird – so maybe it is a giant Robin.  I was thinking hawk or falcon perched up there, but once I uploaded the pictures, I could plainly see it was a Robin.

There was a Song Sparrow, singing on a bush close to the Red River – again too far away to plainly see and I didn’t even notice that some twigs were in between us, but he finally moved a bit for the last picture anyway.

You can tell that he looked at me here and thought “she’s not getting a great picture of me with these twigs in the way” – so he moved.

Next, we saw a pair of Mallard Ducks.

And finally a Wood Duck came swimming by.  I haven’t seen much of the Wood Ducks at all this year, so it was nice to see him.
