Description

One of the many tadpoles dead from the dried up creek. A friend and I scooped some up that were still alive and relocated them to a favorable area. Also, thousands of minnows, mosquito fish, and baby crawdads were saved from the muddy pools. It was so bad in some that the fish were starting to burrow in the mud. That is not a fin sticking out but a piece of mold trying to decay its body.

Description

at the intersection of Beltline Road and Hwy 67 cedar hill. this hawk flew and landed on the pole next to the stoplight. I was able to photo it through my dirty windshield while the light was red. It did not turn so I could see the chest. and it was a small size hawk. I am thinking maybe an adult coopers hawk?
