The Bald Eagles offer most of their winter hunting areas to the Turkey Vultures. The eagles fly north except for the ones who nest around me. Turkey Vultures arrive from the south after a nice winter vacation.
This hike was down in low areas along the river looking for shed deer antlers.
Remnants of deer carried here by coyotes. They eat everything just about.
A piece of spine and a leg.
A bit soggy
Old cars swept away from previous floods in the spring.
A beaver had collected these reeds and limbs. It is interesting that they were cut all the same length, but also how it collected them and balanced them so well on a submerged tree in the river.
Debris that had collected from high water in this lowland area.
Deer prints running fast.
You will have to watch your step along here. It is a twenty foot drop to the water and full of thorny locust trees. I think I will walk around this on a different trail.
