Lots of birds, bluejay, red tailed hawk flying overhead, Canada geese in the water, a black bird with yellow-orange beak on a log in the water, checked my bird books, most likely a Starling. The beak was just to bright to be a blackbird. These are just a few that were on call plus others too far or too high to identify. Butterflies were checking out all the wildflowers and trees in bloom.
On the far end of the pond is a beavers den. Lots of geese hang out in that area. Did not have the time to wait for beaver but they apparently are there and have no plans to leave. I have tried getting pictures of beavers before, a bit difficult. The dark color of the beaver against the dark water and the dark den makes it a bit challenging to get the shot without using flash. One day I will spend time trying to get some good photos of the beaver. Could make for a fun little drawing.
On the road again tomorrow, will check back in over the weekend until then go outside.
