A Walk to the southern part of Arcadia Trail Park

It was a clear, sunny 50 degree day with light northern breeze. All the dusting of snow from yesterday morning is long gone although it went below freezing last night. We decided to head toward the southern end of the park instead of the northern as we usually do. It was much quieter, few sounds of birds. Those that we did see were almost all nearer to the beginning of the walk and the central part of the park. Many of the common birds were seen, the American Robin, the Carolina Chickadee, the Myrtle Yellow-rumped Warbler, and the Mallard. There were three pairs of Mallards swimming and diving for food just below the first bridge south of Basswood Blvd. The only creature seen further south than that was a domestic cat who appeared to be honing in on some birds we could hear in the distance. Don't know if he was a feral cat or just one allowed to wander free in the park. This end of the park is not as well cared for, much more trash along the trail and stream bed. I am honored though that a local boy scout troop has seen folders of pictures I have been taking of the flora and fauna of this park on Picasa and made a pledge to clean our park twice a year, spring and fall.

Descrição

I don't know if this cat was feral or just one allowed to roam free in the park. He was trying to track down some birds that we both heard in the distance. He was wary of me getting very close to him.
