Lost and found

Mute Swan
The Mute swan usually swim in a nearby larger lake. But this season they have been scarce and I did not know why. Mute swans rarely move. They stay put until the lake is all frozen. This day I visited a smaller lake I have not visited since early spring. And at that time it was very low in water and mostly muddy. So, I thought this lake too is drained to become farmland. 
Obviously I was wrong. To my surprise there was plenty of water and Swans in the lake. This is where they have been hiding. I could see more then 200 of them. That was a PLEASURE for sure!

White tailed seaeagle
I also found the lost Seaeagles. They used to fly on the other side of town where there used to be a wetland. That wetland is almost dry now and wildlife is gone. Probably next year there are crops growing there. So I was happy to see the eagle family. I am sure there was three of them, but it might have been a family of four. 

Red Squirrel
They started the forest feeder early this year. Who was the first visitor??
Welcome little one!

  3. It is incredible to me that in 2021 we are still draining wetlands. Have we learned nothing?

  4. Fantastic photos. I haven't heard of a white tailed sea eagle. They reminded me at first of our bald eagle here in the US.
