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.
Speaking of critters – so far on Africam today, we have seen Elephants, Black Eagle, Gymnogene (African Harrier Hawk), Nyala, Kudu, Zebra, Waterbuck, Wildebeest, Giraffe, Impala and Helmeted Guinea Fowl. Click here to see all of the pictures from May 17th.
