A hybrid muscovy duck of some sort was following me along the Marsh Rabbit Run trail. He must have been lost. I’ve never seen a muscovy duck in this park. He came pretty close. He didn’t seem hurt so I kept on walking.

Baby hawk yelling for his mom to bring food. The other sibling was already gone. This one was probably days away from flying the coop.

Nothing unusual to see on my walk at Circle B Bar Reserve back in late May. All of the winter birds and ducks were gone with the exception of a small flock of white pelicans still hanging out across the lake. Most of the spring migration birds were gone. Babies were growing up fast. Even though things were slowing down, there’s still a lot to see. It was right before the summer heat set in.  Now it’s just a million degrees and a thousand percent humidity so I’ll be heading to the beach more for that summer breeze.
