Early Spring by the Creek

While it is still cold, the birds, waterfowl and assorted furry critters have returned to the creek.  It was like a super highway of action on the weekend.  Three male wood ducks chasing a female, the mallards, a pair of herons and two very large beavers.
The very skittish blue heron stayed briefly until it spotted movement on our deck.
There were two of them, something we don't see very often.  They are usually very territorial, so we wondered if they were a breeding pair.
The mallard giving a beaver wide berth.  We watched the beaver chase off some ducks earlier...grumpy fellow.

You can sort of see the flat tail in these photos.
They have been very visible this year and we're hoping they haven't decided to take up residence on that little island. I'm not the biggest fan of our national animal as they are very destructive to our trees.  Move along buster, move along!
