Audubon Trail and Connected Lakes


The highlight of today's walk was definitely the owlets.
Their original nest was blown out of the tree
and replaced with this basket.

We also saw a mourning cloak butterfly on the 
hill that leads down from Redlands Pkwy.

Fish were visible in the murky water of the connected lakes.

Some kind of interesting hanging nest up in the trees.

We saw many red-wing blackbirds and a family canoeing.

We saw a lot of robins. This one was the most photogenic.

Guess what's hiding under this clump of branches?

It's a rabbit.

One more look at the owlets and mama great horned owl. 

We saw this snake at the beginning and at the end of our walk.

It lives under this rock.

It was a beautiful day for a walk on the trail.
