Down by the lake

I don't know why I'm still surprised by the urban wildlife in our neighborhoods and in a way thankful that I have the time (laid-off/unemployed) to visit these backyard treasures. On a recent visit to Seward Park, I was able to see cute, fuzzy chicks, raccoons foraging in the reeds, red-winged blackbirds, an elusive kingfisher, turtles mating (maybe I should post that photo with my raccoons mating video), cormorants drying their wings, a bald eagle circling- just to name a few. All you need is time and a little bit of patience.
