|Nine Wood Ducks on a log|
On a weekend walk around Bassett Creek Park we came across a cluster of Wood Duck chicks resting on a log in the pond.
Wood Ducks don't generally like to be close to people, so it was a treat to see this grouping so near to the walking trail. Seems they were hanging out waiting for mama Wood Duck to reappear.
|Faux snow, A.K.A. cottonwood seeds on pond|
There are a great many large cottonwood trees on the south end of the park. They love the moist soil. I enjoy the shade and beauty of these beautiful large trees. The only down side is during this time of year when the seeds tend to clog up our window screens.
