Today at noon I flew the UAV over Nance Pond and spotted one of the ducks, a very welcome sight. I haven’t seen all four ducks for awhile, and suspect the coyotes or another predator may have taken at least one.
When I last hiked in the canyon, I found two ribs of a deer carcass just off the trail – all that remained in that location. Based on scat, it looks like we have a local mountain lion, which is actually good news.
Here are five pictures of some of the animals who visit the pond. Included is one of the duck and pond, from 110 feet up – Please enjoy! 🙂
