Elizabeth - no ditches. But the thought that it was last year's baby makes sense since he was seen so early in our spring. Thanks for visiting and providing your thoughts.

Elizabeth Gross

Do you have any ditches in your area? Around here (Mid-Michigan) we get a few turtles around and they seem to be moving from pond to pond and stopping through in some of the ditches that retain water all year long. They also don't grow very fast I don't think. Could be last year's baby trying to find a new homestead.

Margaret - the mysteries of nature!!


Don't forget, their sea-cousins travel thousands of miles. Besides, maybe nobody told him that he was little!

Margaret - if so, it was a LONG trip for such a little guy!
Dawn - he was really really cute.

Dawn Fine

I have no clue..but he is a cute fellow..


Adorable! Love that little guy. I'm guessing his origin is the pond on the main road, perhaps?

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
