These are teeny critters! The pond is coming alive: I love these little creatures: amphipod, AKA: freshwater fairy shrimp.
Cinnamon and I were wetland walking on the shoreline, just beyond the trailcamera. I noticed a yellow-bellied bashing away at the tree. (This is the bird that bangs on the satellite tower to call for a mate!)
Moving over to the tree, once it had flown, I could see why they call it that! The sap was oozing out of the holes.
The trailcam tails
Then, there is the porcupine!
The wood ducks walk between the frog pond and the wetland.
Here is the turkey in his splendor. I don't know what triggers him to display. He went by another time, the second part of the video, and did not. His colours are amazing. Hormones on legs!
Thanks to Eileen for hosting Saturday's Critters # 437!
