new trail... new batch of photos...

Yesterday on my way home from grocery shopping, i decided to stop in Waterford and take a  walk along another old rail trail that has a pond on one side and a wonderful wetland on the other.  I was able to get a few nice pictures of a red winged black bird (they are very skittish!) and a close up of a frog.  I usually see turtles out sunning themselves on old logs, but i guess it wasn't sunny enough for them yesterday because i didn't see a single one.  I had a baltimore oriole in my sights, but i just wasn't quick enough to snap a picture... a male and female were gathering fluff for their nest i presume.  I also spotted a very cool bird in the wetland, but he spotted me at the very same time and took off like a flash... and with the mega zoom on my camera, it was very difficult to follow him as he flew off.  I'm not sure what type of bird it was... i'll need to look him up and verify.
