This Robin had just collected a large number of worms from Doug A.'s garden. Most likely collected to feed her growing family!

Swan Lake Park - June 6th, 2015

I had just walked out onto the pier at the entrance to the park when this Osprey (fish hawk) dove into the water and caught a rather large fish.

Mallard Duck
This proud mother of 8 ducklings was resting on the pier island but decided to take her children for a short swim over to the shore for food.

Must be a competition amongst the Mallards for the largest family.
This proud mother won the contest with 10 ducklings.
