Some more things to show you from our Green Island visit. For example this Ring Billed Gull was having a snack on this dead fish. Jeanne and I saw lots of dead fish in the water. I’m thinking they must have died from the lack of oxygen because the water is fairly shallow and it was frozen solid. Like I said I’m not really very knowledgeable about wild life.
This pair of Geese were swimming in one of the small ponds located in the wildlife refuge. They were just slowly meandering along and grooming them selves without so much as a look our way. We would have never gotten this close to any of the Eagles.
Finally here are a pair of turtles. We were driving by and I caught some movement out of the corner of my eye. This pair of turtles had been sunning themselves on this tree branch and when we drove by they dove for the bottom.
We just stopped and stayed motionless for about 5 minutes and slowly they would stick their heads up out of the water, look around, and then go under again. Finally I guess they decided we were not going to bother them and they finally climbed back up on the log and continued working on their sun tan.
I have really enjoyed the time I spent at Green Island and I’m sure I will go back from time to time this Spring and Summer. I find it fascinating to watch and photograph the wildlife.
Have a great week. Thanks for stopping by and be careful.
