I saw these berries on the nature trails at the Sterling Heights Nature Center. The berries were bright red and a little smaller then a blueberry. The first photo is of the berry. The second photo is of the bark from the tree that had the berries.
I found this spider the the downstairs bathroom sink. It's body was roughly the size of a sharp pencil tip. It had light brown to tan legs and a dark brown to black body.
In total I saw 3 male mallards and 4 female mallards. One mated pair was not in these photos. They did seem use to human feeding because they crossed the river when they saw me stop and approach the edge.
I saw this chrysalis on the side of the house. I don't know if it belongs to a butterfly or moth.
I saw a skunk while driving the street. It is hard to say for sure if it was a stripped skunk. It was sprinkling and at night when I saw it.
This wolf spider was at the bottom of the stairs. He was brown and black and about the size of a coffee cup lid.
This small spider was right outside the door. It maybe a little bit bigger then a pencil eraser. It was mostly black, but had some reddish or orange on it's abdomen.
I saw a American Goldfinch fly up within 15 feet of me after I whistled two times.
I believe I saw one of these beetles outside on a drive way. When I got closer to examine it more, it got into a defensive position and even sounded like it grunted or made some kind of warning nose.
This insect was found in a house. It clearly had six legs. It's antenna we're about as long as it's body. It's color was a light shade of brown

While watching some mallards. A single deer crossed the area I was in. I got to see it feed on some leaves from some of the plants that were in the forest wetland.
A small fox ran across the path while I was watching the wildlife in the forested wetland. I was awestruck when ran across the path.
I saw four mallards on my walk around the Clinton River Park northern trail. The first two were a female and a male. They were feeding on something in the water. The next two I saw were a pair of males. They were also eating things from the water. These two however less afraid of me. They even water out of the water for a while and just sat on the trail.
I observed a mother robin stay on it's nest even when I walked directly under it. I believed it stayed because it knew a thunderstorm was coming and knew it was not the time to fly away & leave her eggs.
While walking out of Northern Clinton River Park I saw a fallen tree that showed signs that had been cut down by a beaver.
