A most handsome duck is the Mallard (Anas platyrhychos). He also is one of my favourite ducks! Wherever one goes there seems to be Mallards. Three Cheers or Quacks for Mallards!
A adult Barred Owl (Strix varia) came out to visit us along the edge of the trail on our afternoon hike. We heard that it was in the area, and we very lucky to see it! I’m pleased as it’s a lifer for me!
