This weekend I had the privilege of spending some time at Lake Tahoe. It was a picture postcard perfect weekend, sunny and relatively warm, as warm as four feet of snow will allow.
One of the nights we heard the howling of coyotes near-by and I was able to catch this creature taking a walk in the snow early yesterday morning. He was sniffing around looking for something to eat, I assume. Make sure to click the photo so you can see him better.
Then there are the usual visitors to the lake-side retreat. The mallards,
and the Canada goose. Look at that perfect goose shadow.
All in all, a perfect nature watching weekend.
The Handbook of Nature Study has lots of information on mallards and Canada geese.
