Wildlife on the Arkansas River


I went on a bike ride the other day. I saw this bald eagle. Very far away almost past the limit of my camera. Two years ago I was quite sure that I had never seen a bald eagle in the wild. Since then I have seen lots of them.


And nearby a brief of White Pelicans. They are beautiful and comical at the same time.


And one of the big loners of the world, a Great Blue Heron. In some places, like on a beach, they are almost social with people but usually they keep their distance.


And I focused on a random pile of rocks and sure enough there were some basking turtles. They use up all the rocks and dead trees in the river.

And switching gears, our little Kodi, the Pomeranian graduated from puppy school!!

Here is what he was best at, the thirty foot treat run. He’s really been a good dog and we love him.

That’s about it this week. I am linking with Eileen’s Saturday’s Critters. Go check it out.

    Great captures of a few of my favorite birds, I love the Eagle, White Pelicans and the Heron.
    Congrats to Kodi for graduating from puppy school. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a great weekend. PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

    Nice! We’re lucky to have an abundance of wildlife on the TN River – turtles, fish, coots, ducks, hummingbird, ospreys. even a resident blue heron that patrols our dock here. Have yet to see a bald eagle though.

    Congratulations all around. Kodi for acing those tests and getting that diploma (and to those who assisted )). And to you for the ace critter spotting — especially the Eagles.

    …I wish that eagles were a common sight here! Thanks for hosting the party, Alan.

    Hooray for Kodi! I want to enroll Charlie in training, but I’m not sure he would behave in the car long enough to get there.
