Of course, Chester and I still live and walk around our neighbourhood, which is currently very busy in the furred and feathered department. We have squirrels, bunnies and birds all over the place. The number of ducks on the Red River this morning was amazing. There were hundred, if not thousands just on the 4 or 5 block area where we walk. Even with the great zoom I now have, it is sometimes hard to tell what kinds of ducks I have in view, but there are several different ones among the masses.
Chester seems to think he has found a bunny nest in our yard. I hope not and that he is just hoping as he visits some of the locations of past nests he has found. I notice that although he is spending quite a bit of time on this particular one (I’ve blocked it off to make it more difficult for him to get any closer), he is also revisiting every other spot where he has found a nest other years.
I haven’t even tried to ID all the birds I saw this morning. I’m sure there are the usual Buffleheads, Common Goldeneye and Canvasback. I also recognize that some of them are Grebes, but haven’t tried to find out what kind. It is just the number of different birds all together here that amazed me. I suppose there may be Mallards mixed in there too, but the only one I saw this morning wasn’t in the masses.
The Squirrel and Bunny pictures were all taken through my living room window. One of these days, I’ll clean the window so pictures come out better.
