Part II Wildlife at the Grindstone Creek Wetland
6

In my first installment of the Grindstone Creek Wetland photos I showed only a few birds and concentrated more on the scenery. Here are some of the other birds I was able to capture.

Male cardinal still in his molting phase

Female cardinal. It's early in the morning and she is just waking up.

Dead tree in what is normally the marsh.

What might they be saying to each other? Or is it just a meaningful look?

I am not sure about the species. Perhaps American Widgeon?

GBH on his preferred perch

Egret looking for its breakfast

Looks like there is something.

Bingo, it's a nice catch.

Maybe there is more food here?

Yellow  legs are still hanging around here.

GBH in front of the remnants of a Christmas tree. The Royal Botanical Garden collects Christmas tree to secure the shores of the ponds and creek from carp. The theory is that carp tend to eat the vegetation along the shores thus causing erosion. Piled up Christmas trees make the shore impenetrable.

Maple leaves in full Fall colours

Female downy on the look for grubs

I counted 8 egrets (and one GBH) on this pond alone.
