A good day


It was sunny, so time was spent wandering. The pictures are in the order they were taken.

The first shot of the day was a muskrat. 

Then came a Wild Turkey in display with a female indicating a willingness.

There were many wild ducks seen, but the only I took notice of was the Cinnamon Teal.

A number of types of swallows were photographed, but the only spectacular picture was a Tree Swallow. This male had just fed a female in a nest box.

The first bear that was seen was a black bear with two brown cubs up a tree.

Probably the highlight was two fighting Turkey Vultures fighting over a female. They went at it for about 2 minutes. One male arrived with her, and one left with her, but I could not tell them apart and so it is not clear if she left with the original male or not.

Then there was another female black bear. 

And it’s cub.

    I continue to enjoy all of your photos, Alastair! Quite different wildlife than
    I see here in Victoria. Very damp here at the moment, so even the birds have slowed down today.

    A good day for the likes of you, Alistair, would be a red-letter day for the likes of me. Thanks for sharing.

    I too would be glad to see the cubs up a tree (or with mama) as then I would know that I wasn’t between them and mama bear! A rather eventful day indeed! Is that the same Trevor I see looking through a lens?
