Found this guy behind my house. I'm just starting to do some extreme macro techniques that I haven't done before. This made a great specimen for practice! He was so cooperative and really seemed to ham it up for me.

Description

These are two videos I did today of our local breeding pair of Bald Eagles here in York. Each of the two videos is a different parent. The one shows the first parent leaving the nest. After the second Eagle gets comfortable in the nest I did a longer video where you can see it yawn and do a little bit of nest management. This was from 100 yards away from the bank opposite of the Codorus Creek.

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.

This was out in the middle of the river so it was hard to get a sharp image. I took advantage when it flapped its wings. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe its a juvenile Common Merganser?

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:
