Another typical visitor along the pond’s edge is this muskrat (I think); not the greatest of poses but you go with what you got.
We encounter a pair of loons almost every time we wander down to the pond edge this year. If this is the usual suspect, it is a mother loon and her kid is hanging around nearby. They typically stay 20 yards or more from the shore.
Our trip into the back woods in July had fewer birds and more of the other flying things.
