This morning while I was walking and singing in the park around 6:45, a squirrel stuck his head out and a big turtle came out of the water, Both seemed to "walk out of their way" to greet me. I felt a little bit guilty waking them up, as these two friends usually got up late and did not come out till mid-morning.
Wood ducks loved morning swimming. Recently I saw mostly male ones. I figured the females may be home hatching eggs.
While a few geese were swimming from the bush near the parking lot toward the central island, they were accompanied by an usual creature. When I used my camera as a binoculars, I cried out upon identifying the object being a swimming deer. It appeared to be a young male, with buds on the forehead. As I shared before, Brightwood Park never runs out of pleasant surprises.
I am a frequent visitor of Brightwood Park and enjoy sharing my discoveries.
