A fruitful mid-day walk today! Saw my first (and only) red-winged blackbird of the year. And also watched the muskrat who lives near the footbridge as he gathered and ate the cambium from pieces of plants he brought up from the bottom. Have pictures, too, will post when I get home.
First red-wing I’ve seen this season. He was the only one I saw today!
The muskrat by the bank where he lives. I’ve seen him in the water here but never out on the bank like this.
