Evening folks…something a bit different than birds tonight! This time of year moose are giving birth to their young. I still have yet to photograph a young one while they still have a creamy colored coat. But I will be trying again this year…. This is mom with about ~6 month old young one.

Evening folks…to continue with the guessing game, here is another bird…. I even found where they are building a nest… I'll post a few of them later this week building the nest. So far everyone is going great with the identification of the birds I've posting!
Such a fun time of year with all that's going on in nature….
Evening folks…as a followup to last nights post, Common Loons are the best know parents to carry young on their backs. But certain ducks, such as Common Mergansers as Rick Libbey stated and some Grebes also young their young around as well. I have seen all of the above but only have photographed Loons.
Evening folks…Swans are not one of my favorite birds given they are not native to North America, and the impact they have on local wildlife. But I do have to say they are a nice looking bird, and their nest are huge! Since they are one of the few birds that provide a 'taxi service' for the young, I'm going to try to capture this behavior once the young hatch…. I photographed this bird in Ayer this afternoon.
Now for a quick quiz! What other water fowl carry their young on their backs?
