Soaking up the sun.

It was a nice sunny morning at the park. here are some of the inhabitants soaking up the sun.

This Fellow was back, in all his dark, foreboding, magnificent-ness, the commorant...I think I will name him Snape.

and two turtles (sounds like a song)

turtles are not my thing, but I THINK this is a red-eared slider

and this is a Western painted turtle

Momma duck update, she still has all 10 ducklings!

A new momma was on the pond with her babies. They are a couple days older, she must have had them down on the creek. I have some video of them trying to swim up stream , they made it.

    1. Rachy, she is a really good mom. If the ducklings are in the weather, she is in the water. When it's nap time she has the little guys beside a rock and her on the other side. Some duck moms aren't as vigilant .

    2. That's water not weather! Geeze.

  2. Yes, that's a red-eared slider. I have one in a pond at my house. :-)

    1. Thanks for the conformation! :)
