All #fluff - baby coots and goslings on local fishing lakes.
Heck they really are mostly fluff - but the colours on the head of the baby coot are great.
#wildlife

A baby coot and one parent, on a lake.
Two Goslings, one is wide-beaked mid-quack; standing on some concrete next to some grass with parents.
A baby coot; it's 90% fluff, and is standing in shallow water surrounded by leaves.  It's head has a ring of yellow feathers but then mixed bright colouring.

Found a sick or injured Brown-headed Cowbird in the yard today.
It always stresses me out to see an animal listless, yet clearly distressed, just lying out in the open, at risk for all sorts of predators.
Thankfully we have a wonderful and easy to use wildlife rehabilitation center a couple miles away. So I took the bird over there just now🤞

Just LOOK at this adorable baby bunny! Not even the size of your clenched fist.
It must have sought shelter from the thunderstorm up against the basement door. We were equally surprised when I opened it to step outside. For a hot minute, we had a tense stare down that allowed me time to snap these two pics before it scampered off into the underbrush.

A very small rabbit sitting on a wet wooden deck. It is mostly brown, with black highlights everywhere and white spots on its head and jawline.
A close-up of a small, baby rabbit sitting on a wooden deck. Its left hind leg is splayed out to the side and I feared it was injured, but I think it’s just slipped on the wet deck when I surprised it.
