Wednesday Walk - Angry Birds, a UFO and a Beaver

I saw quite a few things on this #wednesdaywalk

Once I got to the lake I noticed some new signs...

Seems the red-winged blackbirds have taken over the place and are being aggressive of their territory.

So far they are just vying for territory between themselves but once the nests are established these guys will be dive bombing anything that comes too close to their nests. They have no problem landing on your head and giving you a peck or two.

Another angry bird was this goose sitting on her nest. Very suspicious of the human walking by.

I suspect she may have chased another goose off her floating island as I see a loose egg sitting unattended just a few feet away from her.

I finally saw the beaver by the lake again. He was harvesting irises and bringing them somewhere... Sadly he kept diving under water and this was the best shot I could get.

I saw a mallard duck family with just one chick left. Perhaps a fox came by and ate all the rest of them.

Hopefully the little guy will survive.

I noticed something strange in the air. I thought what sort of UFO could this be? Looks like a bouquet of party balloons got away from someone and the wind has been blowing them all over town.

I noticed some marsh marigolds (thanks for the ID @steven-patrick ) but alas no mushrooms on this #wednesdaywalk. Seems the weather is too weird for them to be growing the usual spots I check.

That's all for now, thanks for looking :-)
