Hubby spotted motion in the trees while having his coffee this morning. This was a first for the two of us!
A pair of Wood Ducks were in an oak tree right outside the house. I ran for the camera, they flew. The male landed on top of a ten foot tall pine tree stump. A great spot for a cavity nester.
The red squirrels play King of the Mountain on this stump and this squirrel came up the side once to sneak a peak at what was on top of his stump. The second time he came up the duck flew off and the squirrel claimed the top spot.
