Sleeping Swan



The swan seems to spend a lot of the day sleeping. He drifts from one end of the lake to the other. Can you imagine sleeping with your neck like that?

Tufted Titmouse

We walked down to the dam to see a wood duck, but Mike scared him off as usual. He has no patience whatsoever. However, he did get a picture of a tufted titmouse.

The goslings are too cute not to photograph. We're glad the swan is still here too.

Downy Woodpecker Video

This woodpecker let me use the flash and didn't fly away. The pictures are high quality so you can click on them to see every feather. We probably have posted enough downy woodpecker pictures, so we've moved on to videos. See Downy Woodpecker Video (Quicktime)

Mute Swan

Rainy days always seem to bring surprises to Lake Nelson. Today, we glanced out the window and saw a large swan that we later identified as a mute swan. He has been swimming by for a few hours now and got close enough for us to get some photos. He makes the geese look tiny.

The Geek Squad

Ducks
Mallards

There have been groups of male mallards with no females swimming around the lake for a few weeks. Since its duck mating season, and these males have no females with them, Mike calls them the Geek Squad.
