I love going to the State Park. I usually manage to see things I don't normally see on the lake. Or at least I can get a better close up look at them because the wetlands are much smaller.
The Blue Wing Teals come through every year ... some stay but most move on.
Funny how the female ducks look so much alike. They each have a little subtle difference that the males obviously recognize, but other than that, it is very hard to tell them apart, especially at a distance.
The Wood Ducks stay until fall migration. They are beautiful ... after awhile all we see is the females and their little string of ducklings following them around. I have no idea where the males disappear to.
And there are always the Canadian Geese and even a little painted turtle ...
What a relaxing way to spend a day ...
Have a great week everyone !
