More Nesting Animals

I was so delighted to find a Common Snapping Turtle laying it's eggs today. This is the page in my journal about the event.  There was a Black Kingsnake not too far from the turtle and a racoon just across the field from where she was laying her eggs.
To read more details and see some photos you can go to my other blog here.  I hope you all are having an exciting, fun weekend.

Animal Wednesday - Canada Goose Nests and Gosling

The Canada Goose is doing so well in this area that they are becoming a nusiance in some areas.
I am always amused to find a group of nests in an area where we bird. 
Every nest is different. Some add decorations. 
Others just have the bare necessities.
Some have lots of down. 
Others don't have much at all. 
Then again some have almost all down. 
Others flat get ahead of their nest making. I always attribute this to a new breeder.

When you see these little guys toddling along after their parents....
 you just have to say awwww.

How low could you go for a juicy bug?
Happy Animal Wednesday Everyone.

Thank You

I wanted to thank you all for sticking with me while my muse has been on vacation. Actually it hasn't been on vacation but I have been so busy in the garden and birding that I haven't had the time to post. Soon migration will be over and I will have more time to post. I hope you are having a great weekend.
