One of the last days in May we went over to Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge to purchase our Senior National Park Passes. I got am email from Sonja one of my blog readers, she got her pass at Tamarac. You have to be 62 or older and have proof of citzenship to purchase a Lifetime pass for $10. The cost may be going up soon. It has been on our list of “things to do.”
We watched this family of Canada Geese on the way.
Just outside the front door there was a Yellow Lady’s Slipper blooming in the flower bed.
They had the bird feeders up so I spent some time watching the birds whilst Far Guy visited with the lonely volunteer…we were the only ones there.
Two male Cowbirds and one female on the right. The males were “talking” to each other …probably about that female.
One very friendly Red Squirrel posed for me in the bird seed feeder that is on the ground. I am glad he is there as I would not want him in my yard. Yes I have a bone to pick with the Red Squirrels…they raid birds nests and baby birds fall like rain to the ground and their death. Probably too graphic…but it is the truth.
We had a great ride through the refuge enjoying the early signs of summer…and getting those passes.
