Critters this week
There are a lot of deer in our neighborhood - these were down the street from our house - enjoying the fresh green grass after all the rain we've had lately
And the over-wintering ducks are migrating in. These were in a slough in Birch Bay State Park
American Widgeon and Mallard
Hooded Mergansers - notice how the white on the side of his head makes a square reflection in the water.
Female and male Widgeon and female Mallard
Above the ducks, in a dead tree, was a Great Blue Heron
The way the twigs are sitting it looks like the heron is using a crutch
Hey - what are all you ducks doing down there? You'd better be glad I'm not a Bald Eagle
Out on the shore of Drayton Harbor we saw this Great Blue Heron - looking for lunch
Flying off with his companion - a male Widgeon. I didn 't notice the duck until I got the photos off the camera.
