This has been a very snowy winter. We've had snow on the ground all month long.
A pair of mallards and a hybrid followed the domestic ducks around the yard at the corner of Dickson Mounds Road and County 9, across from the Rare Fish Pond at Emiquon.
An opossum hunted in the corn field along Prairie Road.
Looking back at Emiquon from Clark Road, you can see how Hwy 78 turns as it winds down the bluff.
A deer posed briefly before bounding across Prairie Road and on up the bluff.
A small herd of deer headed out across frozen Thompson Lake on the other side of the trees growing along a creek feeding the lake.
I frequently find hawks along Clark Road. Not as many this winter as last year, perhaps because of the snow cover for most of January and February.
