Found these black ducks swimming in the pond I'm hoping someone can help me ID them please
Walking along Tramell-
Saw at least four broken apart shells in very small area. Dried up pond not far away and of course Trinity River.
Burrow under tree. There was another entrance/exit about 10 feet away. Second shot shows what looks like very fresh scat. I tried to get my friend Ray to stick his arm in to see what was in there. LOL. Just kidding.
Thought I saw trash by the fence. Then realized was turtle shell. Thought oh he must have got stuck and died. No wait it's alive. After laughing and taking photos we pulled it free and set him over fence in direction he was going.
Mother to be sitting on nest. Best photo I could mange with my lens. But great looks at her for a while through my scope.

Lone coyote walking across an open field SE corner of Trinity blvd and Greenbelt Rd, Ft Worth
Coyote walking in a field
Local name = Eryngo. Family = Apiaceae. Relatively common on the preserve and nearby meadows.
As I was walking down the walking path at River Legacy park I turned to look behind me to see if there were walkers or cyclist and noticed this Coyote trotting about 25-30 ft. behind me. As I stopped she/he stopped and I snapped a cpl photo's. I watched her for a cpl minutes just watching me before a group of walkers came around the corner with a cyclist. The walkers stopped as they saw me taking photo's as the cyclist just zoomed right on by scaring off the Coyote. I walked into the woods that she/he had ran into to see if I could get a few more photo's with no success. I returned back to the path and continued on the opposite direction of which the Coyote was last seen. I walked another 2 1/2 to 3 miles and decided to jump trail and breach a small opening thru the tress as I had heard a Hawk and wanted to see if I could get a cpl photo's. As I breached the the trees and stepped out into the opening I looked to my left and there about 15 ft away was this beautiful Coyote that was what seemed to be following me before. I snapped a few photo's as I talked sweet to her/him and she just laid down in the tall grass and posed for me a while. After about 45 minutes she/he got up and started towards me in a slow and unconcerned way as I continued to snap photo's and talk to her/him. She came within about 4 ft of me and smelled me and and looked out over the open field as if to see if there was something to eat and sat down right in front of me. The eye contact we were having was absolutely surreal and I just couldn't grasp why or how this moment was happening. For a little over 2 hours I sat talking and taking pictures of this absolutely beautiful creature and there was never at any moment any fear or aggression in the time of our encounter before I ran out of time and had to leave. I said my farewells to her/him and thanked her/him for being such an astonishing model and departed with a glow about me that is still with me today. What an incredible experience I had just had!!!!!!!!
