Walking onto the trail, I spotted a Red Squirrel chasing a Black Squirrel around a tree. The Red Squirrel was making an angry high chirping noise. Two birds flashed through some trees too quickly to ID. There were around 15 Mallard Ducks on the river diving for food and swimming. The mating plumage of the males had come in at this point. Some of the ducks were making calling noises, it sounded like strange laughter. One of these ducks was sitting on a rock in the sun preening its feathers. After walking a little way further down the trail I looked up into a tree and there was an angry squirrel looking back at me who chirped loudly at the disturbance. In the water I could see a large group of Minnows, each was shorter than a pinky finger in length. There was a bird chirping in the trees that I could not see, it had 1 regular chirp about every 10 seconds. Walking back I spotted some orange mushrooms. I didn’t know what they were so I used a mushroom identification app. It Identified them as Velvet Shank Mushrooms. All along the trail were dead Wild Cucumbers and their vines. Next, I saw a fat Chipmunk sitting on a stump and rubbing its face. Past him there was another stump, on this one there were red down feathers in what looked like a kill sight. I believe that are feathers from a Cardinal because of the color. At the end of the trail, I spotted the Red Squirrel chasing away the black one again. I think the little bugger may have been trying to steal some of his winter stash.
