First nice day of Spring and a Trip to the Vernon Marsh

Today was the first really nice day of spring. 60 degrees, sunny and no wind. I stopped by the Vernon Marsh and was amazed by all of the wild life there. I saw the Muscrat pictured here, as well as several beavers, turtles and large spawning fish. Also saw this beautiful swan surrounded by American Coots show below.

There were also many Tree Swallows, Red Winged Blackbirds and Sand Hill Cranes flying over head. Spring is here:)

I don't know why, but when I see a Muscrat swimming towards me, it scares me....especially if I'm in the water. Very cool pictures.
