I saw one of these last week that had to have the ID confirmed here. I went back yesterday and saw about 6 or 7 of these up and down the shoreline. A woman who lives on the shore where I stood told me this is the first year she's ever seen these that she can remember.

Only the second time I've seen a Loon here. Saw one in the distance a year or two ago. This time I got nice and close to one. I followed him up and down the river for a few hours. It was very nice to see such a beautiful bird like this here.

While watching the Red-Necked Grebes diving around this litte diving duck passed through. It was smaller than the Red-Necks, would not stay underwater as long as the Red-Necks either. I thought maybe its a Horned Grebe but the color of the neck doesn't quite match?

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 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:
