On the way to the grocery store today I cut through the Dykeman Wetlands Park, as usual. Today was a critter day rather than a scenery day. Here's who I saw.
A White-throated Sparrow (sorry for the blurriness; he was back behind a lot of underbrush and just wouldn't sit still) along the Walking Trail.
A Mama Mallard and her chicks on one of the duck ponds.
A Northern Water Snake up on some branches overhanging the creek. They bite when disturbed, but they're not poisonous.
An Eastern Cottontail rabbit along the Walking Trail.
