Saturday’s Critters – Arkansas River Critters

I went on a bike ride on Tulsa’s RiverParks trail system along the Arkansas River.


I spotted this bale of turtles out basking in the hot sun. The interwebs tell me that bale is the collective noun for turtles.


I focused in on the boss bale. At least it was the biggest one.


Just a few white pelicans out and about. The interwebs say the collective noun is squadron, pouch, pod, or scoop. So I am calling these four a pouch of pelicans.


And just below the Zink Dam there was this group fishing.

And here is my turnaround spot with the River Bears in the background. It was a hot day!!

I’m linking with Eileen’s Saturday’s Critters. Come over and join the party.

    I love seeing all those turtles and the White Pelicans are a favorite.
    The Bear sculpture is beautiful too.

    I didn’t know a bale was a group of turtles! Oh, there’s that fountain you didn’t want to climb until they put up a sign telling you not to, right? 🙂

    That’s a fun cycling jaunt. I love turtles and these are cute. I learnt something new today – a bale of turtles. Also referred to as dole of turtles. (courtesy the web)

    I have a Trek too and mine is Green. I love that purple water bottle and your turnaround spot, Alan.

    good day!
