The eagle has landed.  After being absent all summer, the eagle is back in his usual winter Saturday morning spot across the lake.

I saw this weird stuff growing out of the tree. It looked like it could be merengue but I’m guessing some kind of lichen.

I was excited to see another baby deer at the park. Mom and baby stayed pretty far back in the woods. These were taken from the parking lot and heavily cropped so they are a little blurry.

The teenage buck is still hanging around the family.

The older baby was feeding close by the family. Her spots are getting a little fainter.

These were all taken in late September.

I got a brief glimpse of the baby heading into the woods. Early in the morning the deer walk along the road through the park and graze. As more people come into the park, the deer head into the woods. The moms in the group kept this one well off the main paths.

This young buck is doing well. I’m not sure at what age he will take off on his own, leaving the park family behind.

Not a deer, but an almost grown up moorhen. Still looking at mom for food.
