Ellicott Creek Animals


Here are some photo's from this Spring and Summer along Ellicott Creek and the Bike path which parallels the creek.  The Egrets are up to about four birds spending their summer here.  There are also some Common Terns doing the same.  The Beavers are still doing well, with new pups each spring.  A new summer resident is a lone Swedish Blue duck, living with the mallards.  It is possibly an escapee from a farm? These are the animals and birds that were willing to pose this summer!
