Last weekend I saw this bobcat in the prairie dog town south of the eagle nest on Hygiene Rd.! And the silly prairie dog had the nerve to pop up out of his den...
but got off the hook when a truck went by and spooked the cat.
This morning, south of Hygiene Road in Hygiene, I saw a raven chasing an eagle. The eagle was carrying a prey animal in its talons. Eventually I saw where they landed.
It looks possibly like the eagle has a small fox! Probably was roadkill and that's how the raven and magpies got involved (robbed). Have never seen anything like this before and thought I'd share.
Yes, it's a wood duck. It was foraging with siblings in Webster Pond. Here it is with another one more clearly male. The first little guy has a female white eye ring as well as the "bridle" of the drake.
Hi Sangeeta! No, these were maybe 100 yards or less to the right of the footbridge coming from the Nature Center. There are two bare trees and the little guys were in a hollow. I expect most of them have fledged by now except maybe the tiny one. :)
