Spring opens the school tour season. So if you were looking for the park staff, more than likely you did not find us. On any given day we will host over 200 kids at the park. Many are school tours guided by the park staff. Others are self guide like the huge Pinnacle Lutheran crew that came by with parents below.
A lucky shot of a pair of Wood Ducks on the outer trail, female on the left and male on the right. Did not even know I had the female in the picture until we brought it up on the computer. Of course these crafty and very private critters have alluded all attempts to photograph them again.
This Turkey wandered out on the fitness trail one dreary afternoon and walked down the trail like he owned the place.
Turkey walking over to the pull up station.
Another lucky shot, this time of a Pileated Woodpecker in the open. Usually these guys flitter around in the woods making a good clear shot impossible. We were working in the Apple Orchard when I noticed a pair of Pileated working over a dead stump. One flew off and this one stuck around.
