Today's nature video

Post by reible »

This one is a little different then what I normally post. It borders on being strange to watch, especially the first few seconds. Getting any sensations watching it?

On today's hike I noticed the water in this little stream was higher then it has been and no rain to make it so. Conclusion was that there might be a beaver dam.

Sure enough, actually two dams but one was really small while the one in this video is the larger of the two but still small.

Had to hike in to get the video and ended up finding it was a little more of a challenge then I expected. Ended up with one wet foot when I found a water filled hole hiding in the approach. Fell down to one knee which is now feeling a little tender but it was worth the adventure.

Beaver dams don't last around here. They will trap the beaver and remove the dam. At least it will be a little harder to do in this case unless they bring in a tractor....

Will try and visit a few more times while it is still there. Wish I could set up a wildlife camera but doubt it would be there when I came back.....

Same walk as the beaver dam I got to see this play out. A robin eating poke berries. I only shot this series but there were several robins finding the berries and enjoying them, well at least eating them.

Poke berries are interesting and I know some people make an ink out of them and I guess if you know what you are doing you can eat the young plants? Poke Salad Annie:

But the berries are especially poisonous. But not to robins?

And the day wasn't done. As I got in my van to drive off I noticed something out on the baseball field. It looked like this:

That is about were second base would be. Sorry the quality is poor since I was shooting through a dirty windshield and the camera was focusing on the fence....

I zoomed in a little but the results were not much better:

By this time it was clear that we had a baseball diamond loving coyote there.

Since this is a public park and traffic around I guess it felt safe being in such an open area. It didn't last as some hikers were approaching so it got to its paws and slowly moved off towards right field. This gave me the opportunity to get a little better shot. My wife rolled down her window and I went to manual focus. But the other person got a little to close and the coyote decided it was time to call the game and go home.

Vulture feed in our local park

This video was taken at a park just blocks from my home. I was out walking and noticed this event and had to go home and get my camera.

Never a dull moment if you are staying alert.
