    While photographing the birds in ,post

    I also ran accross these two:


    Induced species. The local park rangers pick them up and "dispose of them" so I just didn't tell them. She looks like she's been around for a while. Tough call.


    Another induced species, but they don't try to eradicate them.

    I like this camera.

    They are killing the local species. They also out breed them 3 to 1. Additionally, this is a nesting area and the Snappers, without anything but Blue Herons to eat the young, they are taking many young water fowl.

    Since it is an induce species, it really is a management issue.
