Bona Dea, deer, wood duck, Update
Thursday night into Friday morning, it rained 3 inches in a short period of time. When I went to the park today, Friday, the park ponds and Prairie Creek was filled to the brim. The Spillway was running very full and fast. I have posted 2 videos below showing this and also showing the Green Heron on her nest and 2 Yellow Bellied Water snakes. I took a photo of a male Wood Duck on Waldon Pond spreading in wings on the water. Yesterday I took these 2 photos of a Whitetail Deer on the new road to the pumping station along the Dike. Also have a photo of a White Mushroom growing out of a dead piece of wood. Also saw today a pretty yellow Prothonatary Warbler by the spillway. Also at the gazebo by the parking lot, there were some Tufted Titmouse birds actually playing around inside the gazebo. They were not afraid of anyone. A mother wood duck and her babies were swimming around in Black Water Swamp.
