Bona Dea was sunny today. But it was a little windy. On the Hwy by the park, I saw a dead Opposum on the road as it had been hit by a vehicle. For those who have never seen one a photo is here. Passing the old snag in Lake Darkanelle, I saw again the lonely Double-crested Cormorant. On the Swinging Bridge trail, I saw Black-capped Chickedees and Bushtits as I did yesterday. Also heard a male Northern Cardinal just singing away in the top of a tree but could not find him. Robins were on the ground around the park as usual. On the north end of Waldon Pond a Great Blue Heron was flying over and started to land behind some trees and then suddenly 2 of them fly straight up and few off together. They either were mates are one was chasing the other off. The spillway was running pretty good and Prarie Creek was getting back to normal levels after the Corps of Engineers had completed their cleaning out process mentioned in previous posts. At the spillway 3 of 4 Blue Teal ducks landed in the creek. They fly really low and fast and they land very fast. The Turkey Vulchers and Gulls were flying overhead as usual. At the spillway a gray squirrl saw me and made every effort to avoid me by staying as close to the creek as it could to pass by. I have added a YouTube feature at the bottom of this page for videos I have taken at the park and others to add later on. This saves having to use the complicated procedure I had set up before. A pair of Canadian Geese flew over and landed in Waldon Pond instead of Black Water Swamp for a change. I think it is getting the time of year where the pairs are starting to divide from the group for mating and nesting purposes. Spring is almost here.
