These adult Trumpeter Swans and cygnet were photographed at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge in October of 2017.
There are more questions than answers in these photographs.
I have no idea why the Great Blue Heron and Woodchuck are hanging out together. I’m not exactly sure what the heron was hunting on bone dry terra firma. I certainly don’t know what disagreement occurred between the two. I mean, they wouldn’t even face one another.
I do know the woodchuck meandered off peacefully. Later the heron left quietly as well.
The Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge along Lake Erie in Ohio is best known migratory waterfowl. However, it supports any number of migratory song birds and year around residents. This Northern Flicker was a little out of photograph range, but worth the shots.
