Feeling Like Spring

Walk with kenser
Walking with MacKenzie

A heat spell hit Allegany State Park today with temperatures reaching 50 degrees F. MacKenzie asked nicely to have our first walk around Red House Lake and we kept finding critters also enjoying the sunshine.

The Skunk was up in the field searching for grub . . . . . . Kenser that isn’t a kitty or squirrel . . . . it didn’t seem too concerned that we were passing through the area.

Canada Goose

Honk . . . Honk . . . Honk . . . Canada Goose were flying North!! I got one report of Tundra Swans but I have not found any yet! I anticipate tomorrow in finding swans pushing through the area with these warm temperatures.

    What a delightful day afield. You must have a good zoom lens to get that close to the skunk. The brown creeper looks like it is in your hand it is so close. Wow.

  5. Mid 50’s here too. I have seen a few gaggles of geese (fun word to say). Perhaps spring is on its way.

  6. High pressure system has stalled over Cape Breton and altho’ it’s still pretty cool, you can tell spring’s a-coming! Great shot of the creeper. The little facial feathers are so clear. That skunk looks as tho’ you were intruding! Looks like you had a lovely walk. ~karen
