More Belted Kingfisher Photos

We find it hard not to post kingfisher photos. They have been avoiding us for several months and now don't seem to mind. Last week, the belted kingfisher had his hair slicked back, but today it was up like Don King's.

Swimming Squirrel

We were out in the boat hoping to photograph wood ducks. We didn't see any, but we got some kingfisher photos. On the way back, Chris spotted something swimming across the lake. At first we thought it was a muskrat or even a beaver, but when we got close, we we astonished to see it was a squirrel. It was so far out that it didn't appear to have fallen in from a tree, but looked to be crossing the lake.

Jeff in Cherry Hill: Great Blue Heron that dines at my goldfish pond

Great Blue Heron that visits in the spring and fall to dine on my goldfish pond.
I have installed a plastic decoy which worked pretty well but have been wiped out twice.

I have friends on Circle Lane, Cherry Hill, NJ that have had a Great Blue Heron that has been hanging around since this pass summer. A tree overhanging the Koi pond was cut down. It has snatched about a dozen Koi out of the pond since then. He has dropped most of them because the dogs have spotted him too late.
