I found this on the wall outside of this Grocery Store entrance. This is a local "Giant Food Store". I'm currently a manager at a different "Giant Food Store". I know we sometimes get non-native species of insects, lizards or frogs that hitch rides with the produce and flowers. Where I found this frog on the wall was directly above some potted flowers that were on display outside. They were Mums I believe. I'm not sure what species of frog this would be if it was native as i've never found one before.

Watched three of them here. I've never seen so much Osprey activity in this area in previous years. I've also noticed more Osprey activity in the other places I've visited this year. I've had several people who frequent this park that they've watched the local Bald Eagle chase away the Osprey.

This duck has me and all of the other regulars to this spot confused as to what it is exactly. This is the first I've seen it but its been here a couple days at least according to the others. Is it just a hybrid mallard? Or perhaps a juvenile blue winged teal? Whatever it is I made sure I had more than enough photos from different angles so there would be no uncertainty. There was a couple other ducks with it as well this is one of those:

Description

This was a great success story of rescuing, healing and releasing an Egret that was the victim of fishing lines and hooks left behind to catch snapping turtles in the lake. I was the first to notice this bird and alerted PA Fish & Game and with the help of local parks personnel, a local veterinarian and a local bird rescue organization the bird was captured, treated and later released. Photos I took from the time I first saw the bird to the day it was released here:

The story was told wonderfully on this PBS station bird blog too:
