Muskrat at Lake Artemesia.

I met Graeme early at Lake Artemesia so he could return the coffee cup I left in his car yesterday. Old age and memory.

He was a little late, and I ran into a very cooperative muskrat and a couple of beavers before he arrived.

Al though it was a slow and a little breezy, we did get a nice variety of birds, if not as many as we wanted. Still no migrants to speak of, though.

Two American Coots are still hanging out at the floating dock.

Wood Duck 2018-18

We found a single Wood Duck pair.

Downy Woodpecker 2018-3

This Downy Woodpecker was foraging on the ground. Quite unusual.

Ring Necked Duck 2018-8

A single Ring Necked Duck was in the lake.

Canada Goose 2018-10

Only a few Canada Geese remain in the lake.

This Muskrat got out of the water to eat. I don’t see that often.
