Ship Creek is alive

I think sometimes I do take it for granted what is in my backyard. Macy and I went to go for a walk and we decided on Ship Creek. Always a favorite, not to crowded right now, people are nice and always some wildlife. I really appreciated these common mergansers. What a gorgeous pair.

Even the mew gulls were looking good tonight.

This mallard pair was chowing down.

Even a European Starling was enjoying the weather. I must say, I didn't know what it was until I blew this shot up. It was hiding in the brush somewhat.

This beaver wasn't far from the starling. The pond was small and right next to the road.

It's amazing how much we saw in just an hour walk. I think Macy will want to go back.

I enjoyed seeing some of the same ducks we have in Vancouver, and especially loved the mergansers. I also photographed a pair for the "Our World" post. Miss Macy May is adorable!

What a great walk! I love how much wildlife you can see if you take the time to look.
Thanks all! There is a lot out there. We just need to slow down a little.
