Refuge autumn

Maple color shrub

We ventured over to the wildlife refuge to check on critters and color.

Tree skeleton

Stump skeleton

…and a stump skeleton…

Swan family

…as the bird count was low, and most we saw were far away. We did see a loon (near the loon overlook, of all places), a very few Canada geese and mallards, a wood duck, and this family of swans. The mostly-grown goslings cygnets, to the left, still have slightly brownish-grey feathers; I do not know when they become white.

    I believe that the ugly ducklings are cygnets. Love the pictures!
