With the wonderful weather of late, we've been able to get out a bit more in nature, which has been wonderful. Yesterday we packed up a picnic lunch and headed to a nice park on the lake.The park was pretty empty; we saw only 2 other couples out.
Though nowhere near on par with Elizabeth's pictures, I was pretty happy I got this cardinal so clearly:He was singing and chirping in the trees behind us for several minutes.
Earlier that morning, we saw our most exciting wildlife sighting of the year so far. We were running near a river when something caught Thomas's eye, so we stopped. It was a muskrat! While we watched, he swam around a bit, and then disappeared.
