Duck Pond Residents at Noons Creek

 

Thought our friends and supporters would like to see the more unusual inhabitants of our duck pond – found over the last few months.

We have some salamanders, newts, sculpins……….and of course the usual assortment of feathered beings as well!

Mallards are frequent visitors to the duck pond. This one is a male - you can tell by the bright green head.
