We have wild ducks living in our woods. I hope that means baby ducks!!!

We’re going to have to take our walks in other directions. I want the ducks to stay.

To get to the pond on the other side.

We saw these signs but never saw dogs. We didn’t climb the fence to try to get them to come out for pictures though.

A walk in the woods and a mystery…what kind of bird left these tracks?

dsc01450.jpg
The tracks are 5″ long and are on the trail leading past the horse pasture. So this would be a meadow bird?

dsc01451.jpg
You can see the length of the bird’s tread and his gait in this picture.

dsc01456.jpg
Another picture accenting the size of this bird’s feet.

We have been watching but have YET to see the bird making the tracks. In the meantime, does anyone know what kind of bird is walking through our field? We don’t have even an idea…

Does anyone know what kind of bird this is? He has been coming to our birdfeeder for over  a week. And, we cannot identify him.

 Any help would be appreciated.

 Here is a zoomed close-up:

UPDATE: Janet responded to my question within two minutes. My “new bird species” is a male Rose Breasted Grosbeak.

This little guy has become the ruler of our birdfeeder.  He has been back every day and considers all of the seeds, his. A little while ago he aggressively chased away a female cardinal and a sparrow. They had to sneak down below and to settle for crumbs that fell to the ground.
