Wildlife in my files

 I think this is a muskrat - Bisamråtta. This was the only time I know I have seen it. It is not native to Sweden.   Saw it in Kvismaren, a Nature reserve.

Red-necked grebe - Gråhakedopping
A rare bird to see in Sweden. And when I see it it is way to far out on the lake.

Today I have been diving in my files. It is quite fun actually. This is old shots but I have probably not posted them. The curlew and the grebe is shot with a 500 mm lens so not a too good quality compared with todays shots.

Linking up with the following memes. My thanks to the hosts:

  1. Hello, the muskrat is cute. Neat sighting. I would love to see the Curlew! The Red-necked is one bird, I have seen here. Great photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend. PS, thank for your visit and comment on my blog.

  2. It does look like a Muskrat. As you point out it is not native outside of North America. Perhaps it was introduced years ago for commercial purposes; its pelt was highly valued when people still wore animal furs.

  3. What a cute little critter! And the Grebe is very unique and beautiful! Enjoy your weekend!

  4. They are great photos to see Monica. The Muskrat is enjoying its meal! thank you for sharing them :D)
