BABIES, BABIES, BABIES

Spring is the time for new life, and the park hosts quite the diverse population of wildlife.

A Downy Chested Woodpecker feeds her young just off the boardwalk on the inner trail.

A doe gives an impromptu bath while her fawn nurses.

This fawn was left on a dry spot off the outer trail. The doe was out feeding. This is a very secure spot surrounded by water which makes it tough for predators to track the doe and her fawn.

Mallard ducklings scrounging for food.

Goslings and parents off the boardwalk near the pond.

A vixen had her four kits under the Nature Center shed. Of course we are still finding animals parts all over the park.
